Personal Narrative and Professional Discernment

Connected to the university’s Jesuit value of Contemplation in Action and based on the Cognitive Information Processing model, this course engages students first in self-reflection and exploration. By developing and articulating self-knowledge students can create a narrative related to their values, skills, interests, and personality. Once this narrative is formed, students learn how to share their story verbally, in writing, and how this connects to vocational options and career-specific strategies such as writing resumes, interviewing, and networking. Students can register for this 1-credit course during normal course registration times on MyAccess.
