Employee Career Services has developed a series of online career workshops to guide you through key steps in the job search process. They provide several opportunities for self-paced and self-directed career planning and job search support.
The College of Continuing Education Career and Lifework Planning Services has shared this online resource. The cards sorts provide a quick and easy way to clarify what you want in a career. Doing this activity is like playing solitaire. You have a deck of cards and will deal them out into several categories.
Value Card Sort - Reflect on what is most important to you in a lifework setting
Skill Card Sort - Use this tool to identify and prioritize your skills
If you are ready to explore new dimensions for your career, Employee Career Services offers a course called Career Foundations II. This course has been re-designed to better meet the career development needs of University of Minnesota employees.
Contact your college's career services office or visit the University's Career Services Web site for information on career resources for students.
Employee Career Services has expanded its career lab to include a full range of career services for University employees. This is an opportunity for any employee, regardless of their situation, to have a brief consultation with an OE career consultant. Questions regarding any aspect of career planning or job search are welcome. You can expect to have 10-20 minutes of confidential, in-person time, depending on the number of other clients waiting. This is a free and private service and you can return as often as needed.
The Career Lab is open every other Thursday (see upcoming dates below), from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in Room 130, West Bank Office Building. No appointment is needed.
