Top Five Most Important Career Advices For College Graduates About To Join Their First Job

Don’t Settle For A Job You Don’t Like –
Don’t make your career a mere means to pay the bills. That’s not why you paid for graduation.

SC 187 Meetings – Meetings – Meetings!

How we can thrive and survive – meetings. Notes from our podcast. What makes a meeting bad, good, and recommendations. Meetings are part of our lives, either as the organizer or attendee. Bad meetings are meetings that run long. Meetings should not run more than 30 minutes. Causes of a bad meeting: A poorly established agenda Lack of leadership The tendency of people to talk to much How do you know when you are in a good meeting? The time goes by quickly There is a purpose to the meeting The meeting ends when you are done with the agenda A meeting should only exist if there is reason for the personnel to interact with a topic. Do not bring people together to inform them. Colleagues should not be allowed to speak endlessly. Recommendations… You can set time limits on the agenda items. Recognize that you can’t control the behavior of others, but you can control your own. Think about what you want to say and say it concisely. If a meeting is wandering off topic, you can bring everyone back to focus by stating where we are and where we need to be.

SC 186 Caring for First Generation College Students

Why Our First Generation Students Need Our Help the Most. How we can welcome our newest college students… Notes from our podcast. Statistics tell us that the population of students who are first in their families to attend college is growing. Families want their kids to get better jobs than they have and see a college education as the answer. Families often don’t understand what a college experience will be like for their kids. At David’s university, 44% of the student population are first time college students. Wow! These students are pioneers in their families. Parents may have unrealistic expectation for their kids and apply unneccessary pressure. Independence and Responsibility… The notion of a syllabus and assignments may cause great fear for them. Moreover, they may be embarrassed about asking too many questions. We need to teach and encourage these students more than others because they have no one at home who understands the college journey. We need to help them to understand the landscape. Recommendations… Have your university create a website of resources for first generation students and their parents, possibly available in multiple languages. Get to know who these students are in your classes. Recognize that these students need extra special care. Let your students know that okay to “not get it all the time.” Next week: Meetings – Meetings – Meetings! We welcome your comments, feedback and guest post...
