Employer Advisory Board Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Bradley University Smith Career Center Employer Advisory Board is to enhance employment outcomes by providing a forum for employer representatives and university stakeholders.

  • Facilitating discussions during scheduled board meetings, typically held in November and April
  • Engaging members throughout the year to encourage campus involvement and event participation

We evaluate services by:

  • Analyzing outcomes data to inform best practices
  • Discussing current issues in recruiting and career development
  • Reviewing marketing strategies

We implement best practice solutions by:

  • Collaborating between employer representatives and university stakeholders
  • Developing student and employer focused programming
  • Establishing goals that align with available resources
