Faculty Staff Resources

The Office of Career Services is here to help provide expertise and support to you as you mentor our fantastic Hendrix students. From speaking to classes to providing programs for student organizations to meeting one-on-one with students or faculty, we are a resource to help all students gain a meaningful and productive life after Hendrix. Whether it’s help with selecting a major, a career, or a graduate school, we can assist in many ways. Listed below are several ways our office can partner with you, your department, your majors, and your advisees. Contact our office for more information regarding any of these topics, or to discuss additional partnership ideas not listed on our website. We look forward to working with you!

Referring Students

The Office of Career Services prefers that students make appointments so that counselors can be prepared for a productive meeting. Students may schedule an appointment with a Career Services staff member by calling (501) 450-1440 or stopping by SLTC 224 between 8:00 a.m. and noon or 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. We also offer walk-in hours every Tuesday through Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for students to receive "quick advising" with our staff on a first-come, first-served basis without an appointment.

If you have specific concerns or reasons to refer a student to our office, please feel free to contact us with the information you’d like us to know. It will help us have a more meaningful conversation with your student once he or she has scheduled an appointment.

Resource Library

Our office maintains an extensive resource library with more than 300 volumes for the Hendrix community to use. Titles cover typical topics like resumes, cover letters, interviewing, graduate school exams and preparations, and "what can I do with my major" to more holistic topics like using a liberal arts degree, discerning interests and passions, and finding and playing to strengths. Encourage your students to use these resources in SLTC 238 as they plan for their lives during and after Hendrix.

Graduate and Professional School Preparation

The Hendrix faculty and major advisors are wonderful resources to help students with graduate and professional school preparation. Having been through the graduate school process, faculty are keenly aware of how our students can prepare and apply for graduate programs successfully. The Office of Career Services can also provide guidance and assistance with application materials. In particular, we provide personal statement and essay reviews, mock interviews, and curriculum vitae preparations and reviews. Also, our Resource Library offers numerous books on preparing personal statements, researching top graduate and professional schools, researching geographic areas for quality-of-life data and statistics, and many other resources. Let us partner with you to provide a well-rounded group of eyes and ears for your students heading towards post-graduate study.
