Primary Instructor:

This one-credit course will provide you with both the skills to make yourself competitive for internships and the academic foundation for your success. Much of the course work will focus on concrete skills associated with your representation of yourself, including resume writing, using Linked In and other social media, and developing cover letters, elevator pitches, and interviewing skills. At the same time, we will explore aspects of the world of internships from various academic perspectives.

  • How should we think about the economics of the paid or unpaid internship?
  • How does the psychology of early adulthood bear on the development of autonomy, professional identity, and career interests?
  • How might we think about traditional culture of work in our society and the changing landscape of work and careers in the 21st century?

Course Requirements:

Course requirements include regular participation in class discussions and activities, research on at least one career field, and a small number of brief writing assignments.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for current sophomores, with reserved seating.

Class Format:

2 1.5 hour lectures a week from Jan 9 to February 11.
