Partner with JMC Career Services
James Madison College’s Career Services Office is proud to partner with alumni, employers, and other special guests to provide a variety of career-related programming to students. Based on current trends in student engagement, our program options are designed for smaller audiences who are interested in exclusive, one-on-one interaction with our guests.
Individuals interested in connecting with Madison students are able to collaborate with the college’s Career Services Office on the following types of events:
Brownbag Lunches or Roundtable Discussions
Designed to take place over the lunch hour, Brownbag Lunches and Roundtable Discussions give guests the chance to have casual conversations with 8-10 students over a meal. Career Services can book classroom space or organize a roundtable in the South Pointe Dining facility (located in Case Hall).
Coffee Chats are a chance for special guests to meet one-on-one with students for brief (15-30 minutes) career conversations. JMC works with guests to choose a meeting location and to reach students who then connect with guests to schedule individual meetings. This is a great option for visitors who are in town only for a brief period of time or who have unique scheduling needs to work around.
Practice Interviews or Resume Reviews
Madison student always appreciate the chance to practice their interviewing skills or gather resume feedback from professionals working in the fields they are exploring. Career Services is happy to book space, advertise opportunities to a select number of students, and host your session while you’re on campus.
JMC Career Services is consistently evaluating and amending the programming it partners with guests to provide. While we’ve moved away from larger, more traditional formats (info. sessions, general career talks, etc.), we’d love to hear your thoughts about how you might best reach students! Feel free to reach out to JMC’s Career Consultant Karissa Chabot-Purchase (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss.
