This course aims to provide an understanding of the strategic role that effective career planning and management plays in a successful career and life. Because successful career management has been empirically linked to intrinsic and extrinsic career satisfaction, career management skills should be learned and practiced. To do so necessitates an understanding of the extant career literature and the application of this knowledge to one’s career path. To this end, concepts, processes, and techniques are explored, with an emphasis on linking theory and research with practical lifelong skill development. Students will have opportunities to systematically explore the careers and jobs they have an interest in pursuing and to develop personal awareness such that they can determine a career path that best “fits” them. Topics covered include career decision making, networking for success, as well as various social issues surrounding careers such as those related to gender and diversity.
