HuskyCT Organization – Career Readiness Resources for Classroom and Advising Integration 

Did you know that 65.2% of students said that they get their career advice from faculty and 57% indicated the same from their advisors?1  To equip faculty and staff effectively and efficiently for these conversations, a HuskyCT organization has been developed by the Center for Career Development as a repository of resources and all Career Champions are automatically enrolled in the organization.  The organization, Career Readiness Resources for Classroom and Advising Integration, houses sample syllabi language, career development and competency assignment examples, and career advising resources. Additionally, an Academic Job Search resource has been added to aid faculty and staff in navigating the job application process with doctoral students wishing to obtain a faculty position. As a Career Champion, you can utilize these materials to stay up-to-date on best practices for integrating career into your work with students, understand and utilize services that the Center offers for faculty, staff and students, and help students to navigate their own career paths by intentionally infusing career into academic coursework and conversations.     

The Center also offers student-facing career development modules that can be copied over to instructors’ courses and are viewable by faculty and staff from within the HuskyCT organization.  These modules cover topics related to résumé writing, cover letter development, LinkedIn, interviewing and informational interviews.  These modules are self-paced and a la carte, meaning that they meet students where they are at in their career journey and can be customized for any course.  To gain access to the HuskyCT organization, modules, or have them copied over to your course(s), complete this request form.   

By utilizing this resource, Career Champions will help to promote career equity at UConn by ensuring that all students have access to career resources and career development opportunities.  If you would like additional support in incorporating career readiness resources into your work with students (syllabi, assignments, presentations), please contact Kaitlyn Anderson, Career Readiness Program Designer at
