Faculty Engagement Opportunities

Due to the restructuring and rebuilding of our services, we are not available for classroom visits (with the exception of FYS classes) at this time. Check back for updates as the semester progresses.

FALL 2020 UPDATE: Career Services is deeply committed to supporting a safe and healthy environment for all Tarleton stakeholders: students, faculty and staff members, business partners, alumni, and visitors.

Career Services will host a limited number of in-person workshops and events that emphasize physical distancing and adhere to local, state, and federal public health recommendations. We will also facilitate remote services and a variety of virtual workshops and events to ensure equitable access for students and alumni.
