Career Readiness Month: Week 2! (Theme: Interprofessional Teamwork)
April 10, 2020

Greetings HSC students! Time to celebrate Week 2 of “Career Readiness Month,” during which we will spotlight the Career Readiness Skill of Interprofessional Teamwork. It might seem ironic that we are shifting our attention to the benefits of interacting among teams while we are all practicing social distancing, but everyday examples are showing us that teamwork DOES exist, and thrive, no matter the circumstances. Just take a look at what is going around us in the collective healthcare, biomedical sciences, and public health communities in the US and around the world—all working collaboratively in a shared mission to provide help to those in need. Even technology in the virtual world is helping us all stay connected and continue with our daily lives with a can-do spirit in the name of teamwork.

Please join us for two virtual event this week on the following days to “Level Up” your career!

Thursday, April 9 – Microcredentialing and Marketing Yourself (12:00-12:40 via Zoom)
Join us via Zoom on Thursday for this insightful webinar facilitated by John McKenzie, Assistant Director of the Center for Innovative Learning, about the benefits of microcredentialing, and what is being developed for UNTHSC students. You will learn how earning microcredentials will make you more viable to employers and enhance your “hirability” now and throughout your career. Given the Career Readiness theme of the week, an example of a microcredential in Interprofessional Teamwork will be provided.

Friday, April 10 – Career Café: Open Career Advising in a Casual Virtual Setting (12:00-12:40 via Zoom)
Again via Zoom, come one, come all, and most importantly come as you are to “hang out” with Career Center advisors in this virtual café environment. Speaking of teams, participants will join in an open dialogue with our team to chat about all things career readiness, no strings attached.
