[00:00:00.590]In career development and planning, we do a deep dive
[00:00:03.920]into the major and career decision making process
[00:00:06.550]to ensure you understand your career options
[00:00:09.360]and feel confident about your path in business.
[00:00:12.760]In this course, each student will take a career assessment,
[00:00:15.840]receive a one-on-one resume coaching session,
[00:00:18.570]and network with employers and alumni.
[00:00:21.700]You will also conduct an informational interview
[00:00:24.150]with a professional
[00:00:25.110]who's working in a career of your interest.
[00:00:29.440]Coming into the career development and planning course,
[00:00:32.060]my resume was not anything special.
[00:00:34.510]Having a coach go through each section
[00:00:36.240]and thoroughly explain how to create strong bullet points
[00:00:39.110]with keywords and phrases, helped my resume
[00:00:41.390]stand out amongst others and improved my confidence
[00:00:44.190]whenever I was submitting it.
[00:00:45.860]I also made progress on figuring out my career goals
[00:00:48.760]and met with professionals in my field,
[00:00:50.520]which is something I was very grateful
[00:00:51.900]to have the opportunity to do.
[00:00:54.770]Meg Jay says it best.
[00:00:56.027]"It's the people we hardly know, not our closest friends,
[00:00:58.940]who will change our lives
[00:01:00.060]or improve our lives most dramatically."
[00:01:02.710]The power really is in networking.
[00:01:05.420]BSAD 222 allows Nebraska students
[00:01:08.700]to come learn networking best practices
[00:01:11.540]and then in real time, share with their colleagues
[00:01:13.670]and a diverse group of employers.
[00:01:16.910]I've been coming to the University of Nebraska
[00:01:18.910]for four years
[00:01:20.350]and excited to connect with these young students,
[00:01:22.550]prepare them for their future, and of course, hire a Husker.
[00:01:29.810]The career development and planning course
[00:01:31.670]will break the career process down
[00:01:33.700]and provide you with a support network
[00:01:35.860]to guide you through it.
[00:01:37.590]We want you to leave this course with more confidence
[00:01:40.070]in your ability to navigate your career,
[00:01:42.360]create a polished resume,
