Title: Career Development added to AU Web site
Parents, students, alumni, employers and friends now have 24/7 access to the resources provided by the AU Career Development Office through the university’s Web site. Users can request specific information, schedule an appointment with the office, read event and office information through an online newsletter and obtain popular handouts regarding interviewing, resume writing, and internships.
“Our goals for this site were to broaden our reach within and beyond the campus community,” said Jo Dumontelle, AU Associate Director of Career Development. “Students need access to our office resources beyond our traditional 8-6 business hours. The Internet allows students and our alumni all over the world to use our resources at their convenience. In addition, we believe this tool will raise students' awareness of all the services the Career Development Department has to offer. Finally, we wanted to better link with employers who wish to recruit our graduates. This site is only phase I. Once we receive comments, we'll know better how to re-tool the information to better serve our customers.”
Other features of the Career Development Web site include areas where alumni can become a career development contact person and learn more about graduate school. Also, employers have the opportunity to schedule campus interview days and become involved with job fairs both on and off campus.
The site was created through the combined efforts of the Career Development Office, Brainstorm Design in Indianapolis, and AU seniors Ade Olonoh and Guy Ames. The goal of the new area is to inform users of the changing job market and provide assistance as they work through either their career path or candidate search.
