Sponsorships

Being a partner or sponsor with Augusta University's Career Services helps employers connect with students, faculty, and staff in multiple settings.

Donor Recognition Program

Employers are encouraged to support the efforts of Augusta University and the services of the Career Services Department by donations to the annual fund of Augusta University. Unrestricted gifts to the Augusta University Foundation provide funding for many "extra" programs that are not funded through the state, such as scholarships, technology, research and other special initiatives to enhance all services of the institution.

Restricted gifts to the Career Services Department can also be designated through the Augusta University Foundation. Donor Recognition services can be discussed with the Director of the Career Services if you are interested in making a monetary contribution to support Career Services programs and services. Restricted gifts of any amount can be designated for enhanced career development programming, employer development, technology and other need based initiatives to support various disciplines we support on the campus.

Event & Services Sponsorships

Sponsorships are a great way to interact with prospective applicants and establish a campus presence to foster an organization's recruitment needs. Some sponsor costs are as low as $200 and provide great branding and promotional opportunities for your organization with our services. Sample programs include advertising in our annual CAREER GUIDE publication for students, sponsoring our student etiquette dinner, becoming an employer sponsor on our website with your logo/link, branding and sponsorship on some of our career software that students use and others. If you wish to financially sponsor a special program or service related to Career Services initiatives, please contact the Director to discuss ideas for a future semester event that may be of benefit to your organization.

As a protocol specialist, I assist the protocol officer for high ranking US and foreign dignitaries visits as well as arranging housing, amenities, and transportation. Career Services helped me improve my resume and interviewing skills. Additionally, the JagPREP program took me step-by step on how to prepare and enhance my career search.
