Professionalism is a critical component of your success after graduation – it's not a quality that suddenly appears because you're in college. The Professional Development Center will challenge and coach you to adopt a professional mindset to establish a foundation for your professional brand.
We provide resources to help you develop skills that will differentiate you professionally. You will learn to deliver presentations with polish, manage difficult team situations, craft a competitive résumé, crush the interview and expand your professional network.
Receive Honest Feedback
We care enough to tell it how it is.
Our peer coaches listen, observe and provide straightforward feedback. They don’t mince words; they will challenge you with ways to improve interviews, presentations, résumés and more. We owe it to you to deliver honest feedback. It’s a waste of your time and ours if it’s done any other way.
It’s much easier to understand ourselves today thanks to highly reliable and valid psychological assessments. We have them, we use them, you’ll like them, and your eyes will open.
The Strengths Deployment Inventory® is a powerful tool for understanding the motives and values that drive behaviors. Find your strengths. Identify blind spots. Manage your overdone strengths. Build a better you.
Professional development is not a checklist.
We help you develop your blueprint. You determine your focus areas and establish your own timeline. We’ll review your blueprint, assist in action planning and assign a coach to act as your accountability alter ego.
Polish Your Professional Brand
What do people say about you when you're not in the room?
Understand who you are, what you can do and why you do it. Your brand equity is based on how others perceive your attitude, expertise, ability to influence others and your contribution to positive outcomes.
