PUBAFR 6890 was a half-semester one-hour skills course focused on professional development. This was a good final Glenn College course for me as I was expecting to graduate with my MPA at the end of the semester. Taught by Allie Hutchison, career advisor at the Glenn College, the course focused on resumes, interviews, social media presence, and job applications. This was the first time this course has been offered. In my opinion, it should become a staple at the Glenn College, required along with the communications skills course PUBAFR 6500.
My projects for this course included:
- Strengths assessment
- Master resume
- LinkedIn profile
- Networking assignment
- Interview question
- Final Portfolio
Hopefully these materials will be of use if I decide to go on the job market after finishing my dual master’s degree.
