LAS 200 Career Success Course

The course is very well-structured, and the lessons are very useful as they focus on career readiness and professionalism (highlighting a person’s “strengths,” creating a “personal brand,” networking with people in the fields we were interested in, etc.). It was also fun to speak with my classmates and share how we used our “strengths” in various situations and how we could apply them in the workforce. It made the course much more engaging.
