The Hart Career Center's mission is to help Illinois Wesleyan students become successful young professionals. While striving to attain this goal, the Career Center is always willing to extend its services to the University faculty as well.
Writing a Student Recommendation
Recommendation letters are important. Not only do they make (or break) a student's application, but they also reflect upon the issuing person and institution. How do you make sure that your letter informs the prospective employer about the student, and shows off his or her best qualities?
The articles below provide information and assistance on writing effective recommendation letters:

The Hart Career Center Staff are happy to provide a program for your classes. This can be a general orientation to Career Center Services or something more targeted to your field of study. Collaborating with faculty is helpful to our mission of insuring our students future success.
Faculty Internship Supervision
Many faculty serve in the important role of academic internship supervisors for their department. The Career Center works cooperatively with faculty supervisors to ensure a positive experience for both student intern and the internship work site. A Faculty Internship Supervisor Handbook was developed to provide information and resources for faculty supervisors.
