Conversations about Careers: Engaging Students in and out of the Classroom
Schwartz, Beth M.; Gregg, Virginia R.; McKee, Mark
Teaching of Psychology, v45 n1 p50-59 Jan 2018
Providing career preparation for our students continues to be a focus for faculty, departments, and institutions. Professional development is most effective when accessible to students in a number of ways. This article presents how career preparation can be incorporated in advising, through programming and assessment in a career center, and in the curriculum. We discuss the importance of career discussions in advising, the types of resources available in a career center, and finally, we review a number of courses in which faculty can incorporate discussions and assignments focused on careers in psychology. Through this multifaceted approach, students are more likely to obtain important career information, as they consider what path to take after their undergraduate education.
