In an earlier blog post we discussed the role faculty have in supporting students' career readiness - a critical issue for FirstGen students. We shared some resources and ideas for integrating awareness of career-preparatory skills into the classroom. Here we share a video recap of what we discussed at the forum, along with links to the resources mentioned.
- Use the career readiness reflection document to reflect on how activities/learning approaches you might use in your classes relate to the career skills strongly connected to post-graduation employment. Call those things out to your students.
- Share information about the Internship and Career Center's career fairs and professionalism opportunities on your syllabus, and encourage students to attend.
