  ACE 194 - Career Development

This course helps students to prepare for careers, internships, and experiences in the world of work. To do this, the course provides opportunities for students to: assess their own work-related values, interests and skills and develop a professional identity; explore career options and associated pathways; and develop job acquisition skills, such as resume and cover letter writing, interviewing, and job search strategies. Students will gain practical experience interacting with others in a professional environment, interviewing and networking, and promoting their skills and assets. The course culminates in each student’s development of a career development portfolio which students can use to direct their job or internship search, assist with career decision-making, and support further career development.  Prerequisite(s): Junior or senior standing is strongly encouraged. Every Spring (in person), May Term (online).
