  • Preparing Freshmen and Sophomores for Future Work

  • Summary

    Are your freshmen and sophomore students highly engaged with career services? Would your institution like to begin the engagement process earlier to increase support, awareness, and understanding? In what ways can we help these students begin their career education meaningfully?

    The Stanford Career Education office understands that adaptability is crucial in the ever-changing world of work. In response to this idea, its career center hub, BEAM, has developed three community-oriented programs that incorporate the use of design-thinking principles. Join John O’Neill, assistant dean of career education as he describes these three programs—Frosh Winter Warm Up, 10 Jobs in 10 Weeks, and BEAM Fellows—to gain insight into programming concepts that can be adapted for your institution. Each program has connections with experiential learning for freshmen and sophomores through alumni interaction. You will examine supplemental materials, and review standard operating procedures and key performance indicators for each course to fine tune your existing programming.
