PFDV 1500 Managing Career Development

Learning to conduct a career search and to identify career pathways has become an important part of every student's education. When students begin this exploration, they gain a developmental understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses, the ever-evolving requirements of the workplace, and the relationship of lifelong learning to career success. This course focuses on career planning, job search techniques, and career management. It will include topics of self-assessment, personal development, the work environment, career path alternatives, sources of job information, the process of job application from writing resumes and letters to creating portfolios and interviewing, and strategies for successful career management.
