OUR RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
As part of the core curriculum, all students are enrolled in two 1-credit “Education for Life” courses which span throughout all four years of college. Through these classes, taught by certified career professionals, the students are educated in the key principles of professionalism, resume and cover letter writing skills, financial literacy, networking and interviewing skills, and much more.
The Career & Professional Development Team – Mrs. Kristin Stephens, Mr. Rich Hanley, and assisted by Mr. Tom McFadden – meet with students one-on-one to help them discover career fields that fit their talents and interests, search for internships, edit their cover letters and resumes, prepare for interviews, and much more.
Networking is essential to finding the best internships and careers. Students can network with alumni through a robust Alumni Mentor Program, complete with an Alumni Mentor Booklet, and employer relations initiatives. Alumni come to campus to speak about their careers at Life on Tap and they volunteer to mentor students with similar interests, and more.
