Partner with Career Services

Career Services assists students with all stages of their professional development.  Partnerships between faculty and Career Services are fundamental to student success and career readiness. Career Services provides information and services you can use to better assist your students with their career exploration and preparation needs.

Direct Students to Handshake
Handshake is an easy-to-use career services management tool that allows students to search and apply for jobs and internships, view upcoming career events, schedule career counseling appointments and on-campus interviews, and search organizations that recruit at Montclair State University.  Students can access Handshake through NEST.

Become a Co-op Faculty Advisor
Faculty members play a critical role in maintaining the academic integrity of the Cooperative Education program.  As an advisor, you are responsible for developing the learning agreement, assessing learning outcomes, and communicating with the worksite supervisor.  Contact your career services office to learn more!

Classroom Presentations and Workshops
Career services and employers from a variety of industries are always looking for new ways to connect with students.  If you are interested in adding career topics into your course and/or student organization meeting, please contact your career services office.

Attend Career Services Events
We welcome faculty to attend, and encourage their students to attend, our career services events, such as career fairs, information sessions and workshops.  These events are wonderful networking and professional development opportunities for students.  View upcoming events.
