Career development for your students

Two major things to note for professional and career development for your (undergraduate) students. First, we have a new career center liaison, Shelby Ballard, to help you with any aspect of advising, course development, etc. Second, Ginger has developed a new career development course that is offered online in the fall and thus easily accessible to students on all campuses. From Ginger:

Career Development in Psychology and Related Social Sciences (PSS 211, 2 cr.) is appropriate for all majors, especially those in the social sciences and helping professions. The course includes:

  • Make the most of your degree and your college years, both in and out of the classroom
  • Lay out a 3-, 4-, or 5-year (or whatever your timeline is) plan for your courses toward graduation
  • Understand what employers are looking for
  • Prepare your professional documents (e.g., resumes and cover letters) for the job market
  • Consider and explore graduate school options
  • Practice interviewing skills
