Career Awareness Course (CRDV 203 A & B)

.5 credit activity course offered through Career and Employment Services each semester

Using a liberal arts education as a foundation, this class provides the opportunity for students to assess themselves (personality, values, skills, and interests), apply this knowledge to career options, and take active steps toward a future career choice.

Designed for individuals who have started to focus on career exploration and are ready to take action, an emphasis is placed on career research and developing a professional presence on paper, online, and in person. 

Topics include self-assessment, using multiple methods of career research, and professional skills that include resume writing, building online profiles, and interviewing. 

Here's what students who've taken the course have to say:

“Very beneficial class. Wish I’d taken it years earlier.”
“I suggest this class be mandatory for first year students so they can use it throughout college.”
“As a senior this class is great! I don’t think I would have been as motivated to apply for jobs without it.”
“Very useful information!"
“Extremely applicable and helpful. Everyone should take this class!”
