1. Purpose
To prepare graduating community college students with effective job search documents and skills.
2. Rationale
This is an important project because students can graduate Portland Community College with a
traditional associate's degree, but also with Career Pathway certificates that are three terms or
less of class time. My aim is to get them hired in to entry level roles in their career field.
3. Learning outcomes
I have identified three distinct modules:
Written Documents
Students will be able to write tailored resumes and cover letters for specific job postings. By using
words and phrases pulled directly from job postings, students have a much higher chance of
having their documents pass Applicant Tracking Systems and viewed by human hiring managers.
Job Searching and Networking
Students will be able to use various websites to find job postings related to their degree and longterm career goals. Also, these jobs should be ones that they care about (in relation to Fink's
taxonomy).
Networking includes connecting students with experts in the field for informational interviews, as
well as finding volunteer opportunities related to their degree field to help build their resume.
Interviews
Students will be able to research companies they are interviewing with in order to best prepare
them.
Students will also conduct mock interviews with questions tailored to their specific field (if
applicable). Reflection questions and feedback will help strengthen interviewing skills.
4. Audience and pre-requisites knowledge
My learners will usually be younger people around the age of 21. Since they would be earning
their first degrees/certificates, I am assuming that their prior knowledge and skills will be basic.
While interviewing at Portland Community College for the Career Coach position, the interview
said that 50% of students in the Career Pathway Certificates program are non-white.
The attitudes, I expect, will be mostly positive since students will care deeply about finding a job
to start their career path related to their degree/certificate. This is what I will tap in to to stoke
motivation and keep students focused on finding the right job for them.
5. Description and organization of subject matter
This module's organization follows the Universal Design for Learning organization of identifying
objectives first, then developing activities to meet the objectives, creating materials for the
activities, and finally developing assessment tools to measure if the learning objective is met.
6. Instructional Plan (including materials and assessment)
