Your Career Center colleagues are pleased to share some exciting new resources for faculty, staff and students! In the midst of COVID, we understand how important it is to provide career information online and have worked diligently to create multimedia and visually engaging content to fully engage users. We also have news about opportunities to celebrate our MU student employees and are proud to highlight our headline-making tutoring program, A Way With Words And Numbers. 

While the pandemic has brought tremendous challenges, the Career Center staff also sees this as an opportunity to enhance the way in which we serve students, faculty, staff and employers. 

Please stay healthy and safe this autumn season!
Faculty-Staff Resource Page

The page includes: downloadable lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, a Canvas supervisor toolkit, and a la carte classroom activities.
  • Class lesson plans to download
  • PowerPoint slide decks
  • Canvas supervisor toolkit
  • A la carte classroom activities
  • Recommended career exploration and career readiness resources

New Career Readiness Videos
We just created video shorts on the most popular career topics: resumes, interviews and cover letters. You can find them on our YouTube channel! Please share broadly with students.

New Career Guides   
Finally, we have re-branded our Career Guides with a modern and sleek design and more visual learning tools.

All guides will be updated to this new format before the end of the semester. Just go to Mizzou Career Tools to find them! On the left is a sample of what the guides looks like. 

Shout-Outs for Student Employees!

It is always important to appreciate our student employees, and this unique semester brings on even more of a reason to show our students how much we value them and their contributions to our Mizzou community. If you have a student employee you would like to showcase, we want to hear from you! 

It is easy to get started! Just click on the submission link:
  • You will be asked to share contact information and no more than two sentences of why you want to recognize your student employee. Think concise and meaningful.
  • The student employees will be contacted letting them know of the submissions and will be asked to submit photos to be showcased on social media.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and a few students will be showcased each month. Please send questions to Amanda Purchase Roberts,

A series of sessions is in development to provide resources and support for supervisors of student employees. The series will connect to the Employee Development Timeline (shared below). If you have ideas for topics we should cover or recommendations for presenters, please send to Amanda Purchase Roberts,

This is vitally important in the COVID era when students are attempting distance learning. Free tutoring  can be a critical resource to children and parents. Last year, 450 children in the Columbia community received  6,131 hours of direct intervention from A Way With Words & Numbers tutors.

The program continued to thrive despite global circumstances revolving the pandemic. After recognizing the larger need for individualized tutoring, AWWWN accepted parent requests from families not currently enrolled in Columbia Public Schools.
