The University of Baltimore Career and Professional Development Center's Career Cycle—a series of seminar courses available to UB freshmen and sophomores as a way to help them manage today's complex job market—is one of a dozen student success-oriented programs from institutions across the country receiving accolades from University Business magazine.
"Recognizing the new realities—and cognizant of greater national scrutiny of how colleges were preparing students for life after graduation—University of Baltimore developed a program to provide students with the tools for professional success after graduation and beyond," the magazine said in its round-up of college-based efforts to help students achieve their goals in learning, preparing for a career, acquiring life skills, and so on.
"Seeking to embody the university's tagline—Knowledge That Works—the Career Cycle program offers a four-phase approach: discovery of direction, exploration of the world of work, communication of personal brand and creation of opportunities. It's all meant to empower students and graduates to take charge of their careers and be ready for any bumps in the road."
Lakeisha Mathews, director of the center, tells the magazine: "After 2008, obviously the labor market completely changed, and it changed in a great way for folks who had college degrees or would graduate with college degrees."
