Employers often wish to inquire about present and past students in order to make a decision whether or not to make an employment offer. Students benefit from such offers and thus generally wish for Faculty to respond to these requests. For the employers to find the information credible, Faculty need to speak frankly and accurately in all such communications.
Students who wish for E&CE Faculty to communicate with employers about them (for purposes of possible employment), must fill out and sign the form. Next, visit the Faculty member and ask them if they are willing to serve as a reference for you. Provided that they and you are willing, leave the signed form with the Faculty member for their records.
