COLLEGE TO CAREER: PLAN NOW, SUCCEED LATER
This FlashTopic will focus on helping students to identify and use tools and resources to make choices throughout their college careers that will help them succeed when they graduate and begin their professional careers. It may seem counterintuitive to do this at the very beginning of college but that is absolutely the best time to do so. This includes identifying the questions students should ask, how to seek answers to those questions and then how to take action to make it happen. Through activities and resources, students will look into issues such as: Does my desired profession pay well and have a good future? What courses and majors should I be taking? What can I expect from employers during interviews as I seek a job after graduation? What activities and experiences should I get during school to make myself attractive to future employers?

Instructor: Victor Berardi
Meets for 7.5 weeks.
