Referrals & Letters of Recommendation

Providing a quality recommendation is an important role of a faculty or staff member. It can make the difference in a student receiving a job offer, acceptance to graduate school, or receiving an award or scholarship. The recommendation provides valuable insight for decision makers, yet this vital service is extremely time-consuming and somehow must be squeezed into an already full schedule. The Career Center is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a leading source of information on the employment of the college educated. NACE provides guidelines to assist faculty with writing reference letters and with responding to requests from employers to find students for job or internship opportunities.
