CSO is a resource to register students and to provide information about job postings, campus recruiting, workshops, career fairs, and special events. In addition to schools from the USA, clients are also represented internationally.
Participants learned about outcome assessment, reports, marketing, custom reports, met with client representatives to review their individual school site and learned about new features that will take place in fall 2013 to improve services for both the administrators and the students. Roseanne Bensley was invited to serve on a panel presentation along with the University of Texas-Austin, and the University of Wisconsin on Social Media & Career Services.
