The Professional Development Seminar is designed to provide students with the necessary structure, resources, and support to successfully secure and engage in their first Plastics Cooperative Education experience. Through a variety of interactive teaching methodologies and assignments, students will participate in a sequence of learning activities including self-assessment, industry research, and the development of co-op learning objectives. Students will prepare to engage in the job search process through resume-writing, strategic interviewing, professional networking and learn professional behavior and presentation skills. The goal of the course is to assist each student in developing a sound plan of action to successfully participate in the cooperative education experience.
