Advocating for Career Development as a High-Impact Practice (HIP) for First-Year Students and Students in Transition

What can first year professionals do to integrate career development into the curriculum for first year students? Career development initiatives play a critical role in first year and transitional programming by connecting students with career services early, and fostering an important connection between self-exploration, identity, and career readiness. We will explore career development as a HIP in first year and transitional programming by discussing the integration of career development into the curriculum. The College of Education and Human Development from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities will highlight work done to integrate career development into the first-year curriculum.

Digital Meet-Ups: Giving Students the Opportunity to Make Casual Connections

According to LinkedIn, up to 85% of jobs are filled through networking.  Some NACE statistics indicate that that number could be even higher.  Regardless of specific numbers, it's clear that social capital is invaluable, but traditional networking can be intimidating to students.  This presentation will cover how Baldwin Wallace University Career Services organizes regular meet-ups that allow students to learn from and build connections with professionals in their industries of interest without the pressure of a career fair or one-on-one informational interview.

Goal Pursuit for Student Success: Techniques for the Practitioner

Presenter will showcase practical goal pursuit techniques and how practitioners can implement them. Goal pursuit is a research-based neuroscience concept that represents three components: goal setting, goal striving, and goal maintenance. It is common for practitioners to incorporate a goal-setting process when working with students. Yet, most do not include the more comprehensive concept of goal pursuit and leave out goal striving and goal maintenance. Implementing the goal pursuit concept will increase students' effectiveness in career development and enhance career readiness.

Owner & Counselor, Restoring Hope Counseling and Coaching

Practical and forward-thinking steps will be offered to the attendees to move towards the goal of integration.‚Äč
