Your studies have always been your priority. 
What is your next move?

Grades and diplomas are important, but they are not a guarantee of employment, high wages and management positions.  You need to learn how to showcase how your strengths, skills, and experiences so that they benefit your career and the company you hope to work for.

Understanding yourself and how your natural strengths can be used to create the life that you want to have,  Join us so that we can help you have better self-awareness, understand how you work best and define the impact you crave.  

I thought that I knew what I wanted to do. 
Now I am not sure.

MY PATHWAY HAS ALWAYS BEEN SET BUT NOW I AM NOT SURE IT IS WHAT I WANT. 

CAN I CHANGE MY DIRECTION?

HOW DO I DO THIS?

Making the decision to change is really hard.  You have planned, studied and dreamed of a career in one field, but for whatever reason, you have changed your mind.

How do you use your experiences, studies and strengths to create new opportunities?  How do you decide where you will find more success?

Workplace Preparation Program will help you explore your possibilities and create your plan for the future.

Everyone has an opinion about what your next move should be.
What is your plan?

Your parents, family and friends are excited that you are graduating. They are very open about what they would like to see you do. For the first time, there is no template or no pre-set plan to follow. Each new opportunity makes it more difficult to feel confident that you are headed in the right direction and the pressures and expectations are hard to see past. 

 

You feel the need to make the right move, right now, but how do you know what that is?

 

How do you decide which option is best for your future?

 

Where do you go to find professional help and guidance?

Advisors, Mentors & Industry Professionals are an amazing resource, but the final choice is all yours?

Advisors, Mentors and Industry Professionals will show you what your options are.  They are a great source of information and can help you find the resources and pathways that are available to you.

They will give you an overview of what is out there and a general understanding of the expectations and requirements for each opportunity.  They may even make suggestions for your next move, but the final decision is all yours.

How do you decide?

I went to the Career Center for help.
They showed me the basics.
But how do I know which positions to apply for?

AdobeStock_401820452.jpeg

I am applying. 
Why am I not getting any interviews or offers?

What am I doing wrong?

Having a resume and idea of where to look for employment is a start, but how do you know which company to apply with?  How do you make the application match you as the best candidate for the position?

The Workplace Prep Program will help you to know what you are looking for and how to showcase your strengths and experience so that you can find the right position for you and your career.

How do you know which position is right for you?

The position you are looking for is one that allows you to feel like you fit, can shine and have opportunities to advance.  Achieving this means that you know your strengths and what is important to you.  Understanding yourself, what you want and what impact are the building blocks for creating a career plan.

The Workplace Preparation Program was designed to help you know yourself, your strengths and your expectations so that you create your own pathway to success.

My Resume is exactly what the Career Center told me to make.  What can I do to make myself stand out?

The Career Center told me that I need to make my resume and cover letter match the job posting. 

What does this mean? 

How do I do this?

Resume writing is not easy.  You have been given the basics, but what can you do to make your application stand out?

I know that I am good at things, but am not sure how to make employers understand this/

Are there tricks and tips?

Professional Resume Writers make a lot of money tailoring and tweaking resumes so that they show prospective employees in the best light possible.  You can do this too.

How much help do you think you need?

We built the Workplace Preparation Program in stages.  This was done so that you can decide how much assistance you want and/ or need.

Why pay for help when there are free resources available?

Free is always a great place to start, but are you finding success with the help and guidance that they are offering?

Do you feel ready to take the workplace by storm? 

Or do you feel like you have no idea how to understand what you are looking for and how to get there?

IT'S AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR SUCCESS

As you take your next steps The Workplace Preparation Program is the next level of assistance.  Invest in your own success.

Still have questions?
Here are a few we thought might help.

  • My degree is all that I will need to be successful.  Why do I need this program?

    • Degrees are awesome, but understanding how to know yourself, what you want, and how to best show your strengths will help you find the right position to build a career from.​

  • Will the skills I have used to be successful in school work for success in the workplace?

    • School and work have very different skills sets.  The Workplace Preparation Program has been designed to help bridge this understanding so that you can create the career you hope for.​

  • Does getting a master's degree guarantees that I will find more success and a higher salary?

    • Degrees are a piece of the success puzzle, but understanding how to make your education, experience, and strengths work for your career will be an advantage.​  

  •  A Paycheck and a title are all I need.

    • Money and recognition initially will be enough, but many people find that they begin to look for more.  We spend more time working than we do with our families.  Having a position that makes you feel that you are having an impact and pride in the work will make the time you spend at work worth it.​

  • Now that I have my degree work will pay me what I am worth.

    • Compensation works very differently when you enter the workforce.  Degrees do not dictate your level of compensation.  The Workplace Preparation Program will help you understand and plan for the realities of the New Workplace. ​

  • Young people do not stay in one place anymore. Hopping from job to job will help me find more money and a new title.  What is the benefit of planning a career?

    • Money and Title have been made out to be seen as important, but are you finding impact and satisfaction in working this way?  Planning a career and understanding what is important to you will help you find the success you are looking for.  ​

  • My degree makes me an expert in my field and I should be hired as such.

    • Theory and Practice combined are required to become an expert.  Understanding yourself and how to build upon your knowledge and strengths will allow you to create the career you want.​
