    • Summary

      As more and more universities expand experiential learning to include on campus internship opportunities, career services practitioners are charged with design, development and assessment. The NACE Examining Campus Employment Series provides a unique opportunity to gain strategies to maximize students’ experience and competency development, reimagine the role of student employment, and develop a competency-based student employment program.  

      Presented by NACE members, for NACE members, this series will provide tactical, practical strategies to elevate on-campus employment opportunities within your institution. 

      Join Brandi Derouen, Assistant Director of Career & Professional Development at Stephen F. Austin State University, and Ryan Brown-Moreno, Career Coordinator at Stephen F. Austin State University, to discuss the process by which maximizing marketable skill development should be at the forefront of coaching and developing student assistant experiences. How do we create a dynamic and engaging student assistant program that leads to leadership opportunities within career services offices? And, how can those experiences transfer over to other departments on our campuses which employ student assistants? The Center for Career and Professional Development at Stephen F. Austin State University has a thriving student career advocate program which underwent a shift 18 months ago in response to office needs as well as a desire to create more leadership opportunities for our students. 

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Examine variance between Considered Essential and Rated Proficient competencies attainment; 
      • Identify current competencies within static programming; and 
      • Ideate and establish steps for executing competency based experiential learning opportunities on your campus.
