ADV1140 Career Exploration/Self Assessment

In this one-credit, Career Exploration/ Self-Assessment course, students will have the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of their interests, values, personality, skills, strengths, and areas of challenge as they explore future career options. They will reflect upon current trends in career development and understand more about who they are, how they process information, how they make decisions, why work is important to them, and what kind of work might be the most natural fit for them. Students will explore developmental issues associated with personality and career development, and they will be encouraged to consider ways in which they might maximize their strengths to meet the demands of specific work and/or classroom environments. Interest inventories will be administered to facilitate career exploration, and panels, field trips, and/or presentations throughout the semester will be used to enhance students’ understanding of the strengths and skills required of employees working in a variety of professions. Students will conduct in-depth research related to careers of interest and develop a career development plan at the end of the course. Credits: 1.000
