Employment and Career Specialist
The Career & Employment Specialist works with ASAP students who need assistance with career guidance and placement. He helps students develop career plans based on their interests, abilities, values, and goals. The Career & Employment Specialist also provides students with the opportunity to take a Self Directed Search (SDS) Assessment Inventory to help them better understand the factors that influence their career paths and decisions. The Career & Employment Specialist reviews the results of the SDS with each student.
The Career & Employment Specialist helps ASAP students find full-time, part-time, or temporary work, according to each students needs. Most jobs will be based on the student’s major, but in some cases students will find employment in other areas as well.
The Career & Employment Specialist provides assistance in drafting and editing resumes and cover letters, as well as preparing for job interviews.
Each semester, the Career & Employment Specialist organizes field trips related to ASAP students’ career interests and major course work. For example, in Fall 2012, a group of ASAP students visited the headquarters of Sesame Workshop where they received a tour, a presentation about the company, and a head start on potential internship opportunities.
