Career seminars offered free for military, UD students
Featuring four career- and personal-branding-focused seminars, the University of Delaware’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies (UD PCS) is again offering its Power Up Your Career seminar series from Feb. 8 to May 9 in Newark.
With sessions focused on networking, professional and personal branding, coaching skills and public speaking, the series provides a valuable array of tips and takeaways for anyone seeking professional or personal development.
For the first time this spring, the seminars are being made available to all UD students for free.
“We are particularly pleased to make the Power Up Your Career seminars available to UD graduate and undergraduate students at no charge,” said George Irvine, interim associate vice provost for UD’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies. “It allows UD students to augment their studies with career-enhancing soft skills and is consistent with our being part of UD’s new Graduate College.”
In addition to being free to UD students, the Power Up Your Career workshops are available at no charge to veterans and military service members, as well as participants enrolled in 2020 UD PCS noncredit programs. The series is also open to the public for a $50 registration fee, which includes all four seminars.
Presented on UD’s Newark campus from 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday mornings this spring, the following 90-minute seminars are intended for those seeking practical and immediately applicable career tips and resources:
• Feb. 8 — Top 10 Coaching Skills
• March 14 — Building Your Professional Brand
• April 11 — Public Speaking: Building Your Confidence and Getting Rave Reviews
• May 9 — Networking Across the Lifespan
Due to limited seating, RSVPs are required and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
