Description: This course is designed for juniors and seniors who have taken at least 12 credit hours in their major and are interested in learning to articulate the value of their major in whatever career path they pursue.  Students will develop their online brands for the job search and workplace, complete exercises which will help them identify potential careers, understand their strengths related to specific career fields, practice interviewing and networking techniques, and develop a plan for pursuing their career of interest (which might include plans for graduate or professional study).  Due to the limited number of class meetings, attendance is mandatory.

Schedule: This course will meet two hours a week for seven weeks.

How To Apply: This course has a three-step application process. Each step must be completed by the deadline; however, this course may fill before the August deadlines – students are admitted in the order in which applications are completed.

  • Step 1 – Deadline 8/25 at noon: Send Caitlin von Liski (c.vonliski@austin.utexas.edu) a job or internship posting that you are interested in applying for and write a brief description as to how this course will help you in your job/internship search.
  • Step 2 – Deadline 8/26 at noon: Once you have completed steps 1 & 2 and we have confirmed that you meet the eligibility criteria, we will authorize you to add the course. If you do not add the course by the deadline, your spot will be released for a waitlisted student.
  • Step 3 – Deadline 8/27 at noon: Once you have added the course, you will be sent a StrengthsQuest Assessment code; please take the assessment by the deadline and bring your printed results to class on 8/27.
