Gaining experience with diversity and inclusion can strengthen your student’s global mindset, which currently is highly prized in the workplace. An ability to speak another language, a study abroad experience, or volunteer work with people who are different shows employers your student has an ability to understand and appreciate another culture. In turn, this provides them essential communication and teamwork skills necessary in all workplace environments.
In 2012 UCF joined over 700 colleges and universities from around the nation as having either a tobacco and/or smoke-free policy in place. Today, there are now at least 1827 100% smoke-free campus sites. Of these, 1536 are also 100% tobacco-free, 1400 also prohibit e-cigarette use and 701 also prohibit hookah use.
For career planning, demonstrating resilience is an essential skill your student will need to navigate the many ups and downs of the job search process. Perhaps they did not get the job or internship they wanted, or experienced a poor interview, or even received a negative performance evaluation. Sometimes during career planning, students discover that the dream career they’ve had since childhood is no longer an option due to poor performance in a required class, or maybe they experienced an injury with long-term effects on physical or mental ability. How will you and your student respond to these and other pressures?
