Welcome to the Student Career Development KC, where our goal is to support the growing need to connect the student affairs profession and practices with the career development outcomes of undergraduate students. Join us in playing a role in ensuring that student affairs educators, in all functional areas, and at all levels, are intentionally helping their students connect co-curricular experiences with career exploration and planning to lead meaningful personal and professional lives.
As we enter the final 7 day count down, we are excited to highlight and share a little bit about our third KC sponsored educational session titled Pursuing a Doctorate While Working Full-Time in Higher Education: Things to Consider. This is a great session for those who are considering a doctoral program as well as for those who are currently in the doctoral journey. Our presenters have their own individual story and path that took them from start to finish, and they cannot wait to share it with everyone.
With just 10 days away from our time in LA at #NASPA19, we stop to take a look at our second KC sponsored educational session lead by University of South Florida's Lynn Chrisholm, Director of the Office of Internships and Career Readiness and Peter Thorsett, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Research.
We are just 12 days away from seeing our NASPA community in Los Angeles, California. As you begin to plan your conference experience we invite you to join the Student Career Development Knowledge Community for our various events and programs taking place during the #NASPA19 annual conference. Today, we are taking some time to highlight our first of three sponsored educational sessions of the 2019 NASPA Annual Conference.
If you’d ask any senior student affairs professional in our field today about one of the most important building blocks of a new professional that they did not get early in their careers; one of the most popular answers would most likely be mentoring. Mentoring is not something that you organically benefit from or learn about in your higher education graduate program but rather a connection that comes from a natural relationship or a fostered opportunity. For me, it is an opportunity much like why I chose to make higher education and student affairs my career path- to be able to make an impact on my community and those around me.
Welcome to the Student Career Development KC annual conference experience. Our goal is to support the growing need to connect the student affairs profession and practices with the career development outcomes of students. We invite you to play a role in ensuring that student affairs educators, in all functional areas, and at all levels, are intentionally helping their students connect co-curricular experiences with career exploration and planning to lead meaningful personal and professional lives. Throughout the course of the conference, we will have a number of exciting events and excursions that will allow you the opportunity to connect with colleagues and engage in dialogue to further develop the work of student career development in cross functional areas.
Are you looking to grow your network through a meaningful connection with a colleague from NASPA? Are you a professional looking to give back and invest in a grad student in the field? Are you a grad student looking to broaden your network of support beyond your current institution?
