The College-to-Career Workplace Readiness Guide

2017 Fall Resource Guide

 

Whether it's your first semester or you are a returning student, the LA Harbor College ASO is interested in your success. That is why we have partnered with various college programs to bring you the College-to-Career Workplace Readiness Guide.

The College-to-Career Workplace Readiness Guide provides a comprehensive list of workshops and services to help aid students and faculty in identifying the work/life resources that students need to excel in a field of study while preparing for a lucrative career.

HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE:

This guide is ideally used as a resource to help students identify and participate in on-campus workshops and services that strengthen the skills they will need to succeed.

Students can engage in their own success by using this guide to seek out new career development opportunities, or address challenges that they may have with basic skills or work/life balance.

Faculty may offer extra credit or use this guide as a way to encourage students to participate in their own career development, as a tool to support basic skills remediation, or as a way to enhance soft-skills in the curriculum.

As a job placement tool, this resource provides the foundations for career development, and refers students to new opportunities to receive career advice and gain work experience.

Even Alumni will find that this guide can bring new opportunities to grow professionally while giving them a chance to make a difference in the lives of current LAHC students. Because once you're a Seahawk, you're always a Seahawk.

How do I get involved?

Faculty -

Learning doesn't just take place inside the classroom, in fact classroom time accounts for only a small percentage of a student's day. How do we engage students outside of class?

LAHC programs and services include a variety of free workshops, leadership/ASO club, and workforce development opportunities designed to help students in different aspects of their work-life. By offering incentives, LAHC faculty can encourage students to engage in their own academic and professional success.  The workplace readiness opportunities contained in this guide, provide opportunities for faculty who wish to enhance career pathway development to not only promote student learning outcomes but strengthen the campus community.  For more information on how you might enhance your course/program through workplace readiness resources contact: Michael Caress or Van Benford at 310-233-4042 or by email at careerpathways@lahc.edu.

Individuals -

College is an exciting time in your life, for many students it's the first real sense of freedom and taking charge of their future. You took the first step by enrolling in college but what now?  Take a chance and invest in yourself.  Getting involved on campus offers many perks including but not limited to:  meet new people and network, relieve stress, become more focused, learn new skills, create new opportunities, and build your resume.   Can't find an ASO Club that interests you? Why not create your own? LAHC makes it easy for you to follow your passions.  The organization is here, and the registration process is simple. The only thing missing is you.  For more information on how you can contribute to the campus community contact: Ajay Aquino at aquinoad@lahc.edu

Learn from Professional Opportunities: What's in it for me?

Volunteering -

Service learning gives students a unique opportunity to better themselves as a leader by becoming a more involved member of their community. By participating in service learning and other volunteer opportunities, students gain real-world experience, build positive relationships, and learn how to make a difference in their school, at work, and in their community.   For more information on Service Learning and other volunteer opportunities email Yanez Mercy at yanezm@lahc.edu or visit https://www.lahc.edu/studentservices/​​  to find out more information

Mentorships -

Mentorships have countless benefits for both the mentor and mentee.  As a student you have access to professionals who help look out for your best interests, navigate through your career objectives, develop new skills and gain exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking.  The mentorship relationship is mutually beneficial for both the mentor and mentee, so the college relies on its Alumni and the business community to provide mentors that are not only seeking to support the LAHC student, but are interested in their own professional growth. For more information on the Seahawk Mentoring Program and other mentoring opportunities:  Michael Caress at careerpathways@lahc.edu or visit https://effectiveness.lahc.edu/academic_affairs/ewd/gtl/Pages/MentoringProgram.aspx to find out more information

Internships –

Internships allow you to apply academic knowledge learned in class in a real work environment. By being part of an internship, students learn to answer the question: "Is this what I want to do as a career"?  Internships can come in a variety of opportunities.  They can be designed as part of the curriculum, offered as a paid or non-paid position, or come with a variety of structured and un-structured time commitments. For more information on the Seahawk Internship Program and other internship opportunities: Michael Caress at careerpathways@lahc.edu or visit https://effectiveness.lahc.edu/academic_affairs/ewd/gtl/Pages/InternshipProgram.aspx to find out more information

Job Placement -

Employers are looking for people with practical experience as well as academic achievement. Work placements offer the perfect opportunity to gain experience in your field of study while you complete your program.  Job placement is offered to students who have completed the pre-requests outlined in the employment opportunity announcement. For more information on Job Placement and other career development opportunities:  Michael Caress at careerpathways@lahc.edu or visit https://effectiveness.lahc.edu/academic_affairs/ewd/gtl/Pages/InternshipProgram.aspx to find out more information
