The Job Search Workshop TN

by David A. Thomas and Emily Heaphy


An effective catalyst for the job search, this note is an opportunity for students to focus on the "next steps" of their job search. Students are introduced to a model of career decision-making, which frames their discussion and sophisticates their understanding of the job search process. They then work in small groups to discuss the issues and dilemmas they each are deliberating. The small group work calls attention to the significant value that peers add to the career development and job search process.
