Do You Have Marketable Skills Employers Want?

The College-to-Career: Developing Marketable Skills Conference (C2C) will be held September, 27th and 28th, 2017 in the University Center Ballrooms. This event is the largest professional development event at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. In addition, you can take advantage of Career Services and participate in Speed Interview.

Session Descriptions

Did you know you need Marketable Skills to find and keep a job in today’s workforce?  Most people go to college to learn the tools of the trade in a chosen major and career path, however there are other Marketable Skills that are essential for success in all careers and majors. Join Career Services to learn what YOUR Marketable Skills are; understand which skills you already have; and learn which skills you can improve! Career Services will show you how to utilize your marketable skills to be successful in your job search and career.

Are you still struggling to determine what career would be the best fit for you? Career Services will walk students through Choices 360, a series of assessments (or assessment program) to explore your interests, values, abilities, and determine what careers may be a great fit for you!

Want to know how to market yourself to employers? Want to know what employers look for? Want to know how to get your resume in the YES pile? Want to know how to keep their interest? Come learn from Career Professionals how to answer all of these questions and more!!

First impressions are always vital in the job hunting and interview process. Malcom Gladwell, author of Blink, the Power of Thinking Without Thinking, believes that, "The human brain is capable of making instant judgments with great precision." In his book, he presents evidence that, "A decision made in literally the blink of an eye can be just as correct as months of mental analysis." Come put your interview skills to the test and get exposure, and feedback from career services staff and faculty during Speed Interviewing.

A clear way forward and a network of mentors to get you there will be the focus of this session. Come learn about two strategic tools to help you navigate towards a successful journey towards completing your degree and entering the workforce.

The session will focus on a discussion of accepting the realty of non-permanence and ever-present change in all aspects of life. I will lead a discussion on this theme as it relates to the situation the students are likely presently addressing with their entry into the university. I will also lead them in a few experiential activities and provide them with some resources they can use to support themselves.

There are many opportunities to become involved at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi outside of the classroom. Learn how these experiences and activities can assist you with improving your Marketable Skills that employers are looking for and learn how to translate these co-curricular experiences on your resume.
