ECS Campus Partners Program

Overview

ECS is committed to being a valuable partner for faculty and staff working in the College of Engineering’s many academic departments and programs. Through the ECS Campus Partner Program you can strengthen your relationship with ECS and better support your students in their preparation for a successful career.

Our campus partners are faculty and staff who help Engineering Career Services to spread the word about career development opportunities to their students. Our partners help us in a variety of ways, including: incorporating a predesigned PowerPoint slide highlighting a career-related resource into their classroom presentations, receiving career emails in order to stay informed, posting announcements (provided by ECS) on digital displays, referring students to our office for programming or advising, etc…

To become an ECS Campus Partner, please click here  Learn more about ECS Campus Partners Program by speaking with your departmental liaison.

Without the support of our campus partners, we would never be able to serve the 10,000+ Engineering student population.

Campus Partners Breakfast

An annual event hosted by ECS for College of Engineering Faculty, Staff and Advisors to access  resources and training to further your knowledge of career development resources.   During this event, you’ll gain hands on training on our Career Management Platform, exclusive peaks at upcoming events and learn best practices for furthering your students’ career readiness.    To learn more about this event, please contact Kristina Wright (wrightk@illinois.edu).

Departmental Liaisons

Each member of the ECS advising staff serves as a liaison to one or more academic departments to share mutually beneficial information, referrals, programs and services. Your ECS Liaison is the link to an extensive range of services and resources offered by Engineering Career Services. Liaisons focus on improving services to their assigned departments, communicating ECS resources and opportunities and provide staff and faculty with a personal point of contact. In addition, Liaisons are available to meet with faculty and staff about departmental needs, are able to present workshops to classes or at orientations and can work with RSOs to ensure that students are career ready.
