应用学习 opportunities are an integral way for students to gain insight into the world of work, 探索职业, and participate in servant leadership. A student can explore everything from Accounting to Zoology. In the 职业中心 we view applied learning as having three main components:
- Preparation ——包括找场地, interviewing, 识别主管, setting goals for the experience and learning how to make the most of their experience
- Experience – including working with a supervisor and co-workers to not only develop job skills but to learn about vocational choices and journaling as a part of active reflection
- Reflection – including making sense of the student’s experience and what it means for their future vocational choices; implementation of this reflection between our different programs
Ultimately, these "co-curricular" experiences will enhance not only our students’ vocational or job choices, but also their academic choices when it comes to decisions related to majors/minors or graduate/professional school. The 职业中心 provides guidance on finding internship opportunities in a variety of fields through vnsc威尼斯城网页 sponsored programs or any one of numerous non-college related experiences.
