Career services departments that rock – Pace University

leave a comment »


I wanted to share an email I recently received from a Pace University career services representative who I had met at the NYC Startup Job Fair.

This email is a great example of how college career services departments can and should go the extra mile when engaging with potential employers who are very eager to hire new grads. (yes, its a canned email but it is the thought that counts)

Unfortunately, this kind of interaction has been the exception rather than the rule, at least with the local schools where I have attempted to recruit new grads for our inside sales positions.

Here is the contents of the email:

Sorry for this impersonal way of getting back to you, but I wanted to respond quickly. Some of you have already gotten back to me over the weekend. I really enjoyed meeting with you however briefly.

At the event I really saw the renaissance of business in the New York City area as represented by your companies. Your energy, positive vision of the future and drive was inspirational for me and I’m sure for Pace alumni and students. I have been writing and speaking about real career opportunities with companies few people are aware of and many of you are among them, with several exceptions. Our alumni and students have a strong work ethic and understand that you don’t get ahead without hard work and dedication.

I want to let you know that we at Pace will give you the personal attention that you need to fill positions ranging from internship through experienced professionals. All you need to do is send me the job specs as Word attachments and we will take care of the rest. We want your business and will do what it takes to earn it. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kudos to Pace Career Services, and please send us your best grads! If they are willing to hustle like you, I am sure they would be great additions to our team!
