In an effort to broaden the scope of their work, the McCafferty Career Center at Emmanuel College launched an Employer Advisory Council in Fall 2018, a colloquium comprised of McCafferty Career Center staff and human resource professionals from area institutions created to discuss trends of the industry, best practices and more.

Leveraging the invaluable knowledge the McCafferty Career Center's employer partners have to offer, as well as the College's Boston location and a wealth of prominent organizations with which the McCafferty Career Center works, the installment of the Employer Advisory Council seeks to deepen relationships with these institutions and thus foster student preparation as they enter the workforce. In doing so, the Council will help bolster the practices of the McCafferty Career Center across the board, both in meeting student and employer needs.

“One of the objectives in forming the council is to create an open dialogue that brings diversity of thought and helps inform the work of the Career Center across all boundaries. In turn, sharing these experiences helps the entirety of the Council stay abreast in the ever-changing industry while also creating "a forum of relationship building.”
–Maureen Ashburn, Executive Director of the Leslie Ferrick McCafferty Career Center

In addition to staff of the McCafferty Career Center, the council consists of HR professionals from Boston Children's Hospital, Boston Public Schools, Catholic Charities USA, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Franciscan Children's Hospital and WGBH, all of whom work or have worked within hiring positions recruiting Emmanuel College students.
