This course is divided into two stages. The first stage is the research and development stage, where you will do in-depth research on your career choice. You will explore and learn about the various aspects of pursuing your career. This comprehensive course guides you in assessing your motivations, setting achievable goals, and developing an effective strategy to achieve your goals. You will research the different requirements for pursuing your career, job growth, trade associations, and academic programs. This stage will begin with lesson 1.

The second stage involves writing your resume and conducting a mock interview with a partner. You will also learn about the key elements of a professional resume, how to write an effective resume, and how to present yourself as a professional. By the end of the course, you will go through all the stages of career development by completing a career development plan, which you refer to or update as you progress through your academic and professional career. The second stage will start at lesson 19.

EXPECTATIONS

Respect each other. The most important rule for our class is to respect one another. You do not need to agree with someone to communicate respectfully. Let’s keep this in mind when we interact with one another.

Be prepared for each lesson. Students must complete the assigned work and research for each week to earn points. It will help you get the most benefit out of this course if you take the activities seriously and put in the effort to learn. Additionally, you are encouraged to reach out to your instructor for additional guidance.

Basic research skills. This course is for students who have a basic working knowledge of online research. You should know how to employ proper online search techniques to conduct effective research.

Enjoy the class. Being prepared is essential, but you should never forget to enjoy your experiences. This class will help you achieve your goals by introducing you to valuable tools and resources and presenting information you can continue to utilize throughout your life.

HELPFUL TIPS

I recommend students use the following applications to supplement the learning process:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Adobe Acrobat
  • Adobe Acrobat DC

How to download and complete your assignments:

There are two versions of your assignment, a Microsoft Word version, and a PDF version. You can download the files, and type in the information using Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, or another PDF editing software.

You can also print the worksheet and handwrite your answers, scan it back or take a picture and submit it to your instructor. If you have any issues accessing any of the files, reach out to your instructor.
