Career Planning Modules

Learn about the eLearning modules Career Services has provided to help you easily incorporate career planning and job search topics into your courses. (Already familiar with what these are and how to use them? Go directly to the Career Planning Modules. You will also find the links to the accompanying curriculum which includes activities and assignments on this page.)

Career Readiness Competencies

The National Association of Colleges and Employers has developed a list of 8 competencies employers now expect of all college graduates. You will likely find that these fit well with your course learning outcomes. Provide some context for your students by tying your course assignments directly to these career-readiness competencies, or have them write resume action statements about how they demonstrated these competencies in your course. Go to the Career Readiness Competencies.

Virtual Career Center

The Virtual Career Center is the easiest way to help a student find what they need! You don’t need to know the resources available or where to find them – the Virtual Career Center will guide you. ALL of our electronic resources can be accessed here. Go to the Virtual Career Center.

Vault

Vault is a career information database with an extensive library of eBooks (Guides) on career paths within different industries. These eBooks make good reading sources for a class. Go to Vault.

What Can I Do With This Major?

Using this resource with students can help you start the conversation about careers, and lets students brainstorm career paths related to their academic interests. Go to What Can I Do With This Major?

Skill Articulation Worksheet

This is our most popular activity. Whether you’re trying to help students understand the skills they’re gaining in your course or the value of an experience they’ve participated in, this modifiable activity can help students not only understand the professional skills they’re developing, but how to communicate them to future employers. The first page contains the basic worksheet, and the second page contains an example of one of many ways this activity could be modified to fit your needs. Download the Skill Articulation Worksheet (Word document).

GoinGlobal
