Skilled career advisors strive to address the unique needs of every individual they serve. This course will focus on innovative thinking and resource development, encompassing the areas of service delivery models, social policy, workforce planning, economic trends, and collaborative partnerships. We will explore strategies, programs, and resources available to assist job seekers who identify as housing insecure, individuals with disabilities, justice-involved, mature workers, new Americans, veterans, and youth. We will also explore gender and race dynamics in the workforce, and explore strategies to empower job seekers while navigating these dynamics. The overall intent of the course design is to provide a learning climate promoting understanding, awareness, relevant skills, and building practical knowledge to be used on the job.
