APL 400 - Career Launch

Credits: 1 credit
Summer
This course equips graduating international students with the skills, tools, and knowledge to support their long-term professional development and career goals after graduation. Through interactive class discussions and engaging assignments, the course serves as a bridge to resources, information, and Emerson community members who are invested in the life-long success of Emerson’s rising alumni. Students learn how to articulate and market their professional skills, grow their professional community (i.e. network), and strategically plan their pursuit of career opportunities. In the context of the competency topics and 1-on-1 appointments, students will gain tools to refine and polish their master and targeted resumes, learn critical cover letter techniques, prepare for interviews, learn to network, and more. Students solidify a foundation for lifelong professional development skills and perspectives as presented by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
