The Aspire Center - Expression of Interest for New Positions

If you are interested in joining the team and would like to express your interest in roles beyond the Science and Pre-Health Career Specialist, please complete our expression of interest form.
All candidate applications for the Science and Pre-Health Career Specialist must be submitted through the official application portal for Carthage College to receive consideration.
ABOUT THE ASPIRE CENTER:
The Aspire Program is a newly developed, comprehensive 4-year career development program that integrates entrepreneurship, creativity, and leadership to prepare students for the careers of today and of the future. The Aspire Center is the hub of activity for The Aspire Program with a scope of work that extends well beyond the work of a traditional career center.
The center consists of a small and growing team doing work that will make a real impact in both on- and off-campus communities. In an average day, we’re as likely to be strategizing about regional workforce development needs as planning a program with on-campus colleagues for first-year students to explore their values and goals. We’re like a start-up housed in an established organization, and we are looking for people who are energized by the trials and triumphs of building a new program. The ideal candidate is someone who is flexible, creative, curious, and collaborative.
The Aspire Program, which fully launched in fall 2019, connects students with career advisors and mentors and is designed to provide all students access to meaningful experiential learning opportunities. Carthage’s location in the Milwaukee to Chicago corridor provides students access to a wide range of experiential learning and post-graduate opportunities, and its unique J-term and off-campus study program provides global access to expand students’ perspectives on the world.
ABOUT EXPECTED OPENINGS:
Expected responsibilities for the other new positions will likely involve a combination of leadership, entrepreneurship, career decision-making, data/assessment, or splitting existing career fields amongst Career Specialists. The expression of interest form will let you identify interests and provide information about yourself to help the team understand your strengths.
All positions require candidates to have practice using these mindsets in their work and/or volunteer experiences:
- Optimistic and team-oriented; able to keep team goals in mind, even when working independently
- Works well with ambiguity and is able to make decisions without always having all of the information
- Thinks strategically and is able to prioritize
- Adaptable and able to handle unforeseen events/requests with ease and cheerfulness
