Transfer Students Success

Vassi Deltcheva, UGA

This presentation offers a glimpse in a new research done on the career outcomes rates for transfer students at the University of Georgia. We have looked at the career outcomes data collected from more than 5,000 transfer students who graduated in Class of 2016, Class of 2017, and Class of 2018 and compared them to the career outcomes data from non-transfer students, who graduated from UGA during that same time period.

Developing a Cohort Style Program for Students to Practice and Learn Three of the Major Competencies 

Samantha Shore, Amanda Boland, Augusta University 

This session will discuss an innovative program that has been implemented at Augusta University. This cohort-style program, called JagPREP (practice, readiness, experiential, professionalism), expands over the length of a semester, and promotes the development of Career Competencies as outlined by National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Come hear about how this program was conceived and implemented, as well as discuss how this could be practiced at your own institution.

Internships in the Time of #metoo

Caroline Anderson, Georgia State University

Internships are meant to be positive learning experiences where students learn the ins and outs of the professional world. Sometimes, the things students learn is that navigating a new environment can come with negative situations like sexual harassment.    At Georgia State University, University Career Services initiated a workshop called, “Learn the Line: Preventing Sexual Harassment for Interns.” Join the discussion and bring your ideas about how to discuss this critical and timely topic.
