DeVryWORKS Career Ready

The Career Ready program combines asynchronous e-learning, including recorded lectures, weekly assignments, and ongoing discussion threads, with individualized career coaching and job leads with a dedicated career advisor.

OUR CURRICULUM

The participants enrolled in the DeVryWORKS Career Ready program can access the online course materials and connect with DeVry University Career Services facilitators through interactive web-based tools.

The asynchronous e-learning on the DeVry University LMS and live and the one-on-one coaching sessions with an assigned Career Advisor are conducted via phone, WebEx, or Zoom.

The participants can access the online materials in the DeVryWORKS LMS beginning Monday of Week 1 until Sunday of Week 4.

DeVryWORKS will provide the Company with a status update on participation and engagement on a weekly basis. The engagement report will also include notes from the Career Advisor coaching sessions and job leads sent to each participant.

The program is designed to focus on four areas critical to short-term job search and long-term career advancement:

Explore Your Career: Find out which role and position is a true match for your personality, interests, and preferred industry business and work styles.

Develop Your Job Search Tools: Build a strong set of job search tools such as a resume, a cover letter, and a social media profile. Enhance your interviewing skills to ensure you can compete in the job market with confidence and an appealing personal message.

Launch Your Job Search: Use an organized, action-oriented job search approach to expose all opportunities to research, network, and follow-up your target job.

Advance Your Professional Goals: Professional growth and development can seem overwhelming, discouraging, and difficult to sustain. Applying specific strategies and guidelines, developing skills, and having clear milestones will help you reach your career goals.

HOW IT WORKS

Online, Asynchronous Content

Participants are responsible for logging in to the online course every week, participating in discussion posts, completing and uploading assignments, and watching/experiencing weekly lectures.

There is no set time that participants must attend class online, but they must complete assignments within the week they are scheduled. Participants are responsible for communicating all attendance and assignment-related concerns to the course instructor.

DeVryWORKS will notify the Company when participants do not access the online material or attend the live sessions.

Career Coaching/Advising Sessions

Participants are responsible for scheduling their own career coaching sessions with their Career Advisor, and are expected to come to their weekly career coaching appointments to discuss their career goals, participate in mock interviews, discuss their resume and job search documents, or ask questions pertaining to their career development and job search.

Job Leads

Participants will receive curated job leads from the Career Advisor each week, and are expected to communicate their job search goals with the Career Advisor. Participants may opt-out of receiving job leads by sending a request to their Career Advisor.

Certificate of Completion

Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a digital certificate of completion. Participants who fail to actively engage, attend their career coaching sessions, and complete assignments will not complete the program.
