HuskyCT Organization & Courses

Organization: Career Readiness Resources for Classroom and Advising Integration 

To equip faculty and staff effectively and efficiently for these conversations, a HuskyCT organization has been developed by the Center for Career Development as a repository of resources and all Career Champions are automatically enrolled in the organization.  The organization, Career Readiness Resources for Classroom and Advising Integration, houses sample syllabi language and examples, career development and competency assignment examples, and career advising resources. Additionally, an Academic Job Search module has been added to aid faculty and staff in navigating the job application process with doctoral students wishing to obtain a faculty position. Complete a Module Request Form to gain access to this organization, or enroll as a Career Champion to also get access!  

Courses:  
The Center for Career Development offers two student-facing career courses for students in undergraduate or graduate programs. As students progress through their career development at UConn, these modules meet the students where they are currently at in the process. They are designed to be flexible, interactive, and available to students at all times. They are also self-enrollable by students to complete at their own discretion. Each course is unique to its intended student population which is evidenced by the modules they are comprised of.
