Amy Ware has been appointed as the new Director of Career Services at Christian Brothers University (CBU). Ware will lead the University’s commitment to assist all CBU students and alumni at every stage of their personal career development journey with successful job/internship and graduate school placement opportunities, and will be working in collaboration with the Alumni Office.
Ware comes to CBU from Rhodes College where she last served as Associate Director of Career Services and brings more than a decade of experience in career services, employer relations and academic advising. Ware has also worked as Assistant Director of the Career Center at the University of Georgia, a Graduate Assistant at the University of Memphis, and is an Adjunct Instructor of Psychology and College Survival & Study Skills at Mid-South Community College. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Mississippi and a Master of Science in Counseling and Student Personnel Services from the University of Memphis.
“As the new Director of Career Services at CBU, I am excited about the opportunity to develop new programs and initiatives, new connections, and new internship and employment opportunities for CBU students,” says Ware. “As Career Services begins a new chapter at CBU, I look forward to collaborating with the entire CBU community in preparing CBU students for success.”
At the top of Ware’s immediate agenda for 2013 is the establishment of a Career Services Alumni Advisory Board, a “Careers In” Panel Series that will allow students to hear from professionals in a variety of career fields in order to explore various career paths, Career Networking Socials to provide a more informal way to connect CBU alumni with students, and the Winter/Spring Break Externship Program designed to provide students with a realistic view of a career field while helping them clarify their career interests during the academic winter and spring breaks.
Stephen Crisman, Vice President for Advancement notes, “With Amy onboard leading the integration of Career Services with the Alumni Office, CBU will be better equipped to support our students as they transition into their careers. CBU has a wide network of alumni and friends in the professional community who are already hiring our graduates, and with Amy’s energy and dynamic approach, we will enhance our ability to help our outstanding students transition into successful – and dedicated – alumni.”
