BAM 301 Career Management

3 credit hours

For the majority of individuals, work is a central facet of one’s life. Many fail to adequately plan for this 30-40 year work-life journey. The current work environment has individuals making unplanned changes to their jobs/career. The course is an examination of the factors affecting the selection and development of an occupation/career for the adult who has already been in the workforce for a number of years. It explores career management methods and issues and the all important first step…self-assessment (as an individual, a member of a unit/department, and a member of an organization). Students examine the world of work, its effect on family, self needs, financial soundness, etc. Each student is instructed on how to research career information and then develops an individualized five year career action plan and learns techniques to assist individuals and organizations with career development programs. Note: Course offering cycles apply to the Adrian campus only.

Prerequisite: Junior standing, 5 years work experience
Course is Offered: At one or more Siena Heights degree completion centers, but may not be available on the Adrian campus.
