Career Courses

One of the most important attributes employers look for in entry-level employees is professional work experience. More than 80 percent of students who are involved in a professional work experience are offered a full-time position with that company upon graduation, or because of this relevant experience have a job before graduation with another company.

These courses are recommended if you are beginning to prepare for professional internships and relevant work experience. Through a process of learning about career planning and implementation, you will gain knowledge of how to effectively search for careers that are personally and professionally satisfying.
