In this workshop style session, students have time for personal reflection and discussion. They will complete preliminary work on their IDP by reflecting on how they define career success, and what are their work and personal values. Students will also take time to reflect on past projects, asking themselves what they enjoyed about these projects and what they contributed to the projects.
These activities prepare students to research their three possible career paths (required in the IDP) and to recognize the soft and technical skills (required in the IDP skills gap analysis) they bring to the workplace.
Finally, students will be given several resources to move forward with the IDP. They will be asked to return to the Part 3 session with their potential career paths chosen, their skills gaps analysis, and their timeline for program completion.
Next session: TBA
