I work for the College of EHE Career Services Dept. My responsibilities include program development by assessing what career searching/development information may be useful to students within the college, designing and developing a program that will meet those informational needs through an individual or collaborative effort, implementing and presenting the program through a workshop or information sessions, and evaluating the program and adjusting if necessary. I also conduct one-on-one resume reviews with the College of EHE students.
The Corporate Training and Development major has assisted me with many different areas of knowledge and skills development that I can directly implement into my position with the College of EHE. Extensive training with ADDIE has helped to give me the ability to develop and present information in a more efficient and effective manner. I also have applied training needs analyses on several different occasions while collaborating with my department coordinator to develop program ideas that can be useful within the career services department.
I am very satisfied with my decision to pursue this major, and I look forward to the opportunities CTD will bring me in the future in both my professional and personal development.
