While looking for work can be an exciting time, it can also involve fear and discomfort about change and the unknown. Whether students are all ready in the midst of a job search or just thinking about it, this one day course will help students to determine what their skill set is made up of, the kind of work that is important and realistic to include in their search, and how to get started.
Today’s job market is not the same as it was even five years ago. Knowing where to go, who to talk to, and the opportunities that are available will help to shift students from someone who dreams about having a job, to someone who has the job they always wanted.
How Students Will Benefit: Assess their skills, values, and beliefs about work and looking for opportunities. Develop an understanding for the types of work available to students and where to find more information. Recognize the differences and benefits available through career coaches, counselors, and mentors. Learn different approaches to job searching, such as networking and tapping into the job market.
