Use CDC Services as a Class Requirement

Requiring your students to use Career Development Center services or attend a career event/fair is a great way for students to become aware of our services and gain critical networking and job search skills.

Before requiring your students to visit our office or use our services, please notify KayLee Simmons at or call 479.575.2805. Our career counselors are often booked at least a week or more for appointments, so we would like to be able to work through a plan to ensure all of your students can be seen in an appropriate timeframe.

Class Career Event/Fairs Options

  • View career fairs on our events page.
  • Many of our career events require business casual dress. Please ensure your students dress business casual or business professional when attending a career fair. Students can view our Dress for Success page for more details.
