If you haven't already heard, uConnect and the University of Connecticut are hosting #CareerEverywhere, a one-day career-focused extravaganza on November 6, 2018. With a goal of highlighting how higher education leaders from all areas of the institution can embed career into the entire student experience (think admissions, academics, experiential, and of course, career services). We've put together a full line-up speakers and presentations so there's something for everyone!
Check out just some(!) of what we have planned for the day!
Integrating Career & Academic Advising
- Rick Delvecchio of Quinnipiac University will share how he and the QU team integrated career advising into a faculty advising model for students at Quinnipiac's College of Arts & Sciences. This is a great panel for career educators looking to learn more about implementing an updated model for career and academic advising with buy-in at the Dean and Provost level.
- Kerry Spitze will present how Ithaca College utilizes practical strategies to drive engagement with their traditionally underserved student populations. Anyone who has specialty or underserved populations of students and wants to build engagement should attend this session.
- Monica Clem, from Edinboro University will be speaking to putting the career conversation front and foremost on campus to improve recruitment and retention. This is a great session for marketing and career leaders who want to see how career can be leveraged to make an impact in marketing and recruitment - for traditional and continuing education leaders too!

- Anders Croft from Emerson College will share best-practices on marketing career to first-year students. For anyone who has a focus or interest in the first-year student experience, or wants to get students involved in career exploration earlier in their journey, this session is not to be missed.
- Nancy Bilmes from University of Connecticut will present a session, "Building a Foundation: Branding Career Services to Improve Awareness Across a Large Campus. Drawing from the experience of the University of Connecticut Central Career Services which serves nearly 20,000 undergraduate students, this session will be to any career leader at a large institution or any career leader at any size institution that wants to build awareness and engagement of career services to their student population.
- An interactive (read, FUN) 'Map Your Ed Tech Stack' Activity based on the collaboratively published Career Ed Stack Whitepaper from uConnect and Sheetal Patel from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.
- NOT TO MENTION, a build-your-own sundae bar featuring ice cream from the University of Connecticut Dairy Bar, and a reception filled with games, prizes, snacks, and a little friendly competition ;)
