Strengthen Workforce Preparation in your Program

Support Your Students

Support your students from day one through graduation and give them the preparation they need to find the right career. Many students are unaware of the diversity of careers they can pursue with a geoscience degree. Help students discover the possibilities by building connections with local and regional employers, encouraging them to attend association meetings, and developing an alumni network with whom they can interact.

Some strategies for supporting your students include:

Connect with Employers & Alumni

Establishing a relationship between your department and local employers can lead to benefits for both sides: students gain awareness of opportunities and build their professional network while employers can get a preview of potential hires. If your department has alumni working at local companies, they can be an invaluable resource during this process.

Maintaining a thriving alumni network can lead to many more advantages. Alumni serve as examples to current students and are often happy to give advice.
