Faculty and Staff

  • It is important to us that we continue to expand our partnerships within our community. If you are wondering how we might support you or your students, we hope to hear from you. 

     Please consider the following:

    • We have an electronic portal that contains internships, jobs, other professional opportunities, advice, sample documents and more. This central hub, Handshake, is a great resource for you and your students. We offer demos! 
    • Classroom or group outreach. Our advising team always appreciates requests to visit the classroom or group meetings and present on topics ranging from resume and cover letter writing to interviewing techniques. We can make sure that you don't have to cancel a class if you know you will be out a couple of weeks in advance, as we can substitute with pertinent information to share with your students. Email Stacy Ress ( to discuss possibilities with your course or student group.
    • We advise students of all class levels and academic disciplines. If you are looking for someone to assist a student regarding their pursuit of a major, how a major selection may affect a career track, etc., we are happy to help.
    • MyPlan. This online resource is meant to support your students/advisees in exploring interests, preferences, skills and other elements linked to careers. MyPlan is located on the Career Exploration and Development "Resources" page on the My.Gannon portal and can be accessed at no charge when using the appropriate code.
    • What Can I do With This Major?  This resource is also available for your students/advisees and breaks down different ways they can leverage their college degrees in a variety of professional fields. Some of the information may surprise you!  This resource includes helpful links to better prepare students for their next steps in their career planning.
    • BIG INTERVIEW. This resource provides students with individual accounts in a cloud-based system that focuses on interview preparation. Student users can leverage industry-specific interview tracks and receive feedback on their performance in real time from the artificial intelligence built-in. 

    If you have other questions or ideas, please don't hesitate to call 814-871-7680 or stop by and see us in the Student Success Center.
