Career Competencies

One of the most important processes a person needs to be more than competent at the job search.  To be successful requires mastery of a collection of particular skills.  STEM-CDI offers a series of workshops that will allow you to develop these skills and become comfortable with the process.  This series will include:
  • STEM Specific Resume and Cover Letters:  Yes there is a difference. We will work with you one-on-one to improve your resume.
  • Interview Skills: The interview can be the most intimidating part of the job search.  In addition to a workshop each participant will sit a mandatory mock interview.  These interviews will be filmed and then reviewed one-on-one so that you can see what the interviewer sees.  We will also offer mock medical school interviews for participants who need them.
  • Dressing for Success:  Right or wrong, people do judge a book by its cover.  Fashion industry professionals will work with you to develop a fashion plan for your job search.
  • Job Search Management:  Think of your job search as one of the most important projects you will undertake.  HR professionals and peer mentors will give pointers and discuss possible pitfalls.
  • Business Communication:  Appropriate professional communication is the foundation of a great career.  This workshop covers everything from your interview, to working with colleagues to negotiating you next job.
