Professional Practice

August 12, 2013

In an increasingly multi-disciplinary, culturally diverse and multi-generational workplace, there is a need to better identify and apply competencies, skills, and experiences to prospective employers. How does what you learn in the classroom, co-op positions, campus activities and student organizations impact your professional career? What experiences in college are transferable to the professional world?

The presenters will discuss transferable skills, redefining and looking beyond your major, setting and expressing professional goals, and identifying workplace strengths and challenges.

Some questions for discussion during our session:

  • How do I apply the experience I’ve gained in college to a professional setting?
  • What is the importance of having clearly set career goals?
  • How do we best identify and meet employer expectations?
  • What are effective ways of communicating with people across different cultures and generations?

This workshop will offer insights regarding applying the knowledge and skills gained from a program of study to the achievement of goals in a work, clinical, or other professional setting. Additionally, students will learn strategies for transitioning from college to career as well as increase self-awareness of linking experiences to professional world.
