UNIV1030 - Pre-business Career Development

UNIV1030 pre-business career development is a two-credit, elective course designed to walk students through the career development process. It is divided into three modules:

  • Self-assessment — career assessments including Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory
  • Exploration and networking — major and career research to explore options
  • Internship search process — resume, cover letters, interviewing and dining etiquette

Pre-business students enrolled in UNIV1030 meet once a week and participate in activities and assignments that relate interests and personality with choosing an academic major and associated career pathway. Students learn to network with alumni and employers, and develop internship search and basic interviewing skills. Students also meet one-on-one with a career development specialist.

UNIV 1030 is offered fall and spring semesters. For more information and to receive the specific CRN for this course contact: Geralyn Heystek: (269) 387-2759 or geralyn.heystek@wmich.edu
