From this module, I've learned that Career services department can benefit everyone within and outside of the institution. And as an institution that works with students, we can take advantage of the Orientations to let prospective students know more about what our Career services department offers.

I learned that Personal Branding can help an individual to sell themselves i.e you're looking for an opporturnity, it is crucial to develop a personal brand. In a school set-up, this is also something Career services department can assist students with in getting prepared for their career development.

I learned that keeping in touch with graduates is important to me for several reasons. Firstly, it helps me maintain a strong alumni network, fostering a sense of belonging and community among former students. Secondly, it enables me to provide ongoing support and mentorship opportunities for current students, as graduates can share their experiences and provide guidance. Lastly, staying connected with graduates allows me to track their career paths, gather valuable feedback, and showcase their success stories, enhancing the reputation and credibility of my institution.

I learned  that for resume building you must emphasize the skills and qualifications that are directly applicable to the position you are applying for. Highlight your technical expertise, certifications, and relevant educational background that make you a strong candidate. Showcase your work history, highlighting key accomplishments, responsibilities, and projects that demonstrate your abilities and achievements in previous roles. Quantify your achievements whenever possible to provide concrete evidence of your impact.

I learned that hosting employers in a career fair can foster relationships between the school and industry stakeholders. These partnerships can lead to collaborative initiatives, such as guest lectures, mentoring programs, or industry-sponsored projects, enriching the learning experience for students and enhancing the school's reputation within the healthcare community. Employers attending the career fair may actively recruit students for internships, part-time positions, or full-time jobs. This direct engagement increases the chances of securing employment and provides a platform for students to showcase their talents and abilities.

What I learned from this module is that if Career Services is able to provide the proper resources to our students, said students will be assisting Career Services in the long run with accreditation, reporting, and school success. As well that having a mission statement helps define the department's purpose and outlines its core objectives, providing a clear direction for the services and support it offers to students.

During this lesson I learned a better understand of the classification of my current student population and how to effectively state the benefits during initial meeting and encounters. 

Incorporate revisions, proofreading and revise documentation accordingly.  Pay close attention to details and ensure document follows a consistent layout.

Our mission has been to ensure our Career Services Department is at the forefront of our mission in hairdressing, barbering & esthetics. Love getting this training & re-affirming everything we are doing as a team to help students cross over to employment.

In teaching about common job search challenges, I've learned that individuals often struggle with clarity in defining their career goals and finding suitable job opportunities. Crafting effective application materials and preparing for interviews can also be challenging. To address these issues, I intend to provide practical guidance, interactive activities, and resources such as resume templates and interview guides to help job seekers overcome these challenges and stay motivated throughout their job search journey.
