Career Transition, Pt. I & II
A career change can feel overwhelming, but this supportive small-group workshop, led by an experienced career counselor, helps students investigate job options and develop a plan of action. Determine your career direction using a simplified two-part process. Assess your professional ambitions, personal priorities, talents, personality, interests and skills. Learn to evaluate your findings and translate them into workable, realistic and rewarding goals. The Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory as well as other materials are included.
Resume Strategies for Career & Life Transitions
Create a resume that showcases who you are and what you can offer. Whether you are returning to work after an extended absence, or looking for your first job, the next step in your career or a bridge job prior to retirement, a well-developed resume is key to any effective job search. This course examines resume and cover letter formats: how to account for gaps in your background, frequent job changes and freelance work, and how to highlight accomplishments that close in on your target.
