Professional Preparation Program

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This semester, A&S has provided a three-part series called the Professional Preparation Program. Each cohort is presented with the opportunity to hone their professional skills through workshops on the qualities that are desired in the professional world. These students have learned things such as resume-building, networking, interview skills, how to dress for success, business etiquette, and so much more. The second and third parts to this program include learning problem solving, and even getting the chance to help an actual non-profit. The program will conclude with a final presentation in which the students will present their solutions to a problem facing the non-profit.  Further opportunities to participate in this program will be offered in the spring semester.
