Career Planning workshop to be offered to COB students in late November

About the Student Professional Development Program

The Student Professional Development Program is a series of non-credit workshops designed to give business students the skills they need to present themselves in a professional manner throughout their career. The program consists of four workshops: career planning, professional appearance, professional etiquette, and the job campaign.

The Student Professional Development Program is required for students using the 2005-06 and subsequent catalogues. The requirement will automatically be waived for students on the 2004-05 catalogue. Any student using the 2005-06 catalogue will have the Student Professional Development Program waived if they graduate before the start of Fall 2007. Those students using the 2005-06 catalogue and graduating before the start of Fall 2007 will need to submit a waiver form to Dr. Jack Hoggatt, COB assistant dean for student affairs.

Career Planning, the first workshop in the College of Business Student Professional Development Program, will be offered November 20, November 27 and December 4 from 5:30 - 6:30 pm in Schneider 315. Topics covered in this workshop include exploring different majors, looking at career options, and determining strategies for developing the competencies employers look for in new employees.

Students attending this workshop must complete a homework assignment prior to the first meeting date. Information about the assignment will be emailed to those who enroll in the workshop.

NOTE: Completion of the Career Planning workshop is a graduation requirement for business students using the 2005-06 and subsequent university catalogues (see sidebar for more information).
