Career Center Launches Employer Advisory Council with Local Organizations

In an effort to broaden the scope of their work, the Career Center at Emmanuel College has launched the Employer Advisory Council, a colloquium comprised of Career Center staff and human resource professionals from area institutions created to discuss trends of the industry, best practices and more, which held its first meeting on December 5.

Leveraging the invaluable knowledge the 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 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 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," said Executive Director of the Career Center Maureen Ashburn. 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."

In addition to staff of the 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, KPMG and WGBH, all of whom work or have worked within hiring positions recruiting Emmanuel College students.

This meeting of the Employer Advisory Council marks the first of two yearly meetings, with future plans to discuss how colleges and universities become target schools for internship opportunities.
