I Took the Career Management Class. Now What?

Dear T, TI, and CI Students:

Happy New Year! And welcome back! I hope you have had a productive Winter Break. I had a wonderful time visiting relatives and friends in Sichuan, China and Taiwan. I am back, ready for another great year.

I would like to say THANK YOU to the students from my Career Management class last semester. Eight-four percent of you responded to the class evaluation compared with 50% from last year. I value your feedback as it helps me zero in on how to better support you. Your comments pointed out you have the following needs after the completion of the Career Management class.

I. Information:

Specific companies and organizations as employers

What people in certain positions do.

If you would like more information or practice, please see me. Given that you come from diverse background with various career aspirations, I am happy to work on a personalized plan to tackle your specific needs. I told you in our first class that I am your “personal trainer.” This is the time to put it into practice!

2nd year students, this offer is extended to you as well.

I look forward to working with you.

Best,

Winnie Heh
