Winter 2017 Professional Development

Please join us for the first ACAA Professional Development Workshop of 2017: Integrating Career & Academic Advising

Wednesday, February 1, 11:00am-12:00pm

Knight Library Collaboration Center (Rm. 122)

The NACADA award-winning School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC) advising team will present on strategies for integrating career advising with academic advising.  Topics included will be contrasting different types of paths for students related to major and career; looking at career options straight out of undergrad programs (as opposed to professions that assume graduate-level preparation); and incorporating specific career preparation benchmarks (i.e., career exploration, gaining experiences, networking, preparing cover letters and resumes) into a four-year advising timeline.  This also happens to be a topic on which the SOJC advising team will be presenting at this year’s Region 8 NACADA conference!
