Subject: Register for Spring 2021 Academic Career Courses

Description:
For many students, the most effective way to make time for career development
is by taking a class.  There are a number of courses that address different
aspects of career development, internship or job search preparation.  Some
are taught in a classroom setting and others are offered online.  All provide
exposure to career resources and practice in using essential job search
techniques.

PSYC 123: The Psychology of Getting Hired is a one-credit, online
asynchronous course that introduces students to psychological principles
involved in hiring processes.  Students pace themselves through six modules
that combine academic content with hands-on activities, online discussions
and deliverable materials.  Two significant activities—a resume review and
a mock interview—occur live through Zoom.

EDCP 108i: Academic Transitions to Internships is a 7-week (half-semester)
course recommended for students who have never had an internship and are
actively searching for one.  The one-credit, online asynchronous course takes
students through key exploratory and preparation activities, including
understanding the components of an internship, increasing knowledge about an
intended career field, developing a resume and cover letter, and identifying
potential internship sites.
