Collaboration Opportunities

Student Career Preparation

Our office provides career advising to help students identify their interests and skills as they explore potential career paths. Refer your students to us if they need help with choosing their major or with any career related needs. Additionally, the Malone Center has online resources that students can take advantage of in their career exploration process.

Purposeful Pathways Grant

Furman University has established a Purposeful Pathways Grant program to support student professional development at the academic department level.

Grant funds supported by the Center for Engaged Learning, the Office of Mentoring & Advising, the Cothran Center for Vocational Reflection, and the Malone Center for Career Engagement

Request a Presentation

Don’t cancel class! Request a classroom presentation about career exploration, cover letter and resume writing, interview tips, the graduate school application process, or job search strategies.

Career Competencies

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) is a leading source of data on outcomes of a college education. Through research with employers, NACE has identified broad competencies that support college student career readiness. Through your efforts in the classroom, students gain competencies that prepare them for a successful transition into the workforce. Share your curriculum-specific skills with us as we help students articulate their classroom experiences as career-focused competencies.

Post-Graduation Outcomes

Each year, in conjunction with the Office of Institutional Research, the Malone Center for Career Engagement conducts the First Destinations Survey to capture the professional outcomes of the graduating class. You may be asked to share this survey with students who you know have figured out their post-graduation plans.
