Thank you for your interest in offering a career assignment in your class. The Office of Career Services is committed to providing career content and resources for students to connect their academic experiences with their career development and preparedness for the job market & beyond. To assist in this process, we gathered several career-related assignments that are "ready to geaux."
Please review the different assignments below and let us know which you are interested in requesting for your students.
Students will use their Focus 2 career assessment results to find clues to unlock a door in a virtual escape room by unscrambling a code. Career insights will be revealed at each stage of the game. Completion of Focus 2 required.
Students will attend the Career Fair and initiate conversations with at least three employers about career opportunities. Following the Career Fair, students will write an essay describing the event, their perspective, and their thoughts about attending and outcomes or next steps.
Students will develop three behavioral "stories" using the STAR technique as a template drawing from past experiences in internships, co-ops, part-time jobs, volunteering, or college projects/activities
Students will develop a professional profile including professional photo, as well as a complete summary, education, experience, and skills sections. Students will join at least two groups on LinkedIn and connect with at least five other professionals.
