Professional Development

Davenport  University Career Services values our relationships with employers, and we offer several ways you can partner with us.  Our regional Employer Advisory Boards provide an important venue to share industry-relevant information so that we can better prepare our students for your workforce.  Contact us for more information!

Davenport University's Institute for Professional Excellence (IPEx) is your resource for professional development programs. These programs support your organization's internal learning and development efforts. 

As an expert in your field, you can help DU grads transition from college to the workplace successfully through an internship. Internships offer cost effective, short-term, qualified staffing for employers for special projects, seasonal transitions and on-going activities while giving our students hands-on work experience in their field. Internships are also an excellent way to vet potential candidates over time without the concern of commitment.

As a mentor, by providing job shadow opportunities, participating in an employer panel event, our career fairs, or providing information sessions about your organization or industry, you can support the professional development of our students. Contact us and learn more about how to be a part of our Career Services Professional Development Plan.

Career Services offers a number of resources to help developing professionals grow their capabilities within the work place including hard copy resources, presentations like this one!, and internet resources for all levels of student and alumni.
