Participants will learn how to integrate required components to develop successful career programs, services, or courses to achieve desired outcomes.  Focus will be on identifying the client group and specific needs of that group, formulating course/program purpose, and building a comprehensive outline.

This course will introduce strategies for effective face-to-face group facilitation. Topics include: stages of group development, differences between facilitating small and large groups, and strategies for effectively managing challenging situations.

Note: To simulate face-to-face facilitation, students will use either a live or asynchronous digital technology to facilitate a group. In addition, they will participate in two groups facilitated by their peers. Group facilitation and participation is a mandatory component of this course; your assignments will require a reflection on your experiences.

This course will provide career management professionals with the tools they need to coach clients through the process of employment interviews and job negotiations. Types of interviews and commonly used interviewing techniques will be introduced and tips provided to facilitate interview and negotiation success.
