Faculty and Staff

The mutual goal of RealWorld Career Services (RWCS) is student success. By working together, faculty, staff, and career service professionals can ensure the transition from student to a member of the work force is as seamless as possible. We continue to build a career education program based on the philosophy that career development is a lifelong cyclical process. We invite you to review our offerings to students and ask that you share this information with students, helping them to see the value of an early and continuing connection with the RealWorld Career Services office.

We also provide the following programs and services related to the work you do with students:

  • Class Presentations
  • Graduate Follow-up Studies and Reports
  • Internships and Job Shadowing Programs
  • Online Job Referral System

Requests for Presentations


We are available for class presentations, seminars, consultation and participation in research on career-related topics. You can add us to your syllabus now or no need to cancel class, schedule a special career-related presentation for your students. Contact us now to make arrangements.

Graduate Follow-up Survey and Report


RWCS conducts a graduate follow-up survey of all graduating seniors each semester to collect information on the post-graduation activities of our graduates. A report of the data collected is compiled after the end of each fiscal year. Encouraging graduating students to complete a survey is appreciated and assists with our outreach services. We can then continue our relationships with alumni to assist with our efforts with current students.
