Career management is an essential skill whether you are just starting along your career trajectory or a mid-career professional. Our Career Management course synthesizes your academic and professional goals, preparing you for future internship and job opportunities. Together we will identify personal strengths, build a professional brand image, and master effective job search strategies.

In a series of intensive and engaging classes, we will work with you to explore, clarify, and activate your professional vision. You will begin by asking yourself three key questions:

- Reflecting upon my strengths, goals, and passion, how should I build my professional image or personal brand?

- How can I strategize my job search to align with my long-term goals?

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

Topic covered will include: Professional Identity, Personal Branding, Resumes, Cover Letters, Networking, Interviewing, Compensation Negotiation, and Professional Development.

This course is highly recommended for first-semester students; although, students in any semester are welcome. No tuition is charged for this non-credit course. All students are welcome in this course, although the NPTS, IEP, and DPP advisors will be teaching the course.

This course meets during Community Hours, so you’re welcome to lunch. Some course meetings will include Employer Info sessions in the 2nd half of the meeting.
