With universities, parents, and politicians paying close attention to student success after college, academic libraries are making efforts to support career readiness and preparation through collections and licensed resources as well as related instruction sessions and reference services. At this panel, presenters from three universities will discuss a wide range of practical opportunities for libraries to support career preparation across campus, including partnering with Career Services for database cost sharing and career readiness workshops, teaching students to conduct company and industry research for interview preparation and salary negotiation, and out-of-the-box opportunities at Career Fairs and Alumni Association events.

After attending this session, participants will be able to articulate methods and processes for developing career readiness services for both graduate and undergraduate students. The session will conclude with an interactive discussion of how participants could adapt the techniques described for use at their home institutions.
