Career management is an essential life skill whether you are just starting along your career trajectory or a mid-career professional. This Career Management Course (CMC) focuses on synthesizing your academic and professional goals to prepare you for future internship and job opportunities pursued during the Spring semester. With engaging, in-class activities we will build on your personal strengths to identify your professional brand image, revise your resume and cover letter and create a professional relationship-building plan.

You will begin by asking yourself these key questions:

- Reflecting upon my strengths, goals, interests and vision, how best to build my professional image or personal brand?

- How can I effectively communicate my strengths through a resume, cover letter and networking, including LinkedIn?

- How can I view the internship and job search from the employer’s perspective?

- How can I prepare myself to be resilient in a constantly changing job market?

This course is highly recommended for first-semester students, although, students can also participate in their second year of study. Joint IEP degree students are highly encouraged to participate. This course is offered in program-specific sections, so if your schedule permits, it is recommended to sign up for the section corresponding with your degree program. This is a benefit to the student and no tuition is charged for this non-credit course.
