Career Advice at 4 AM: Using Online Learning Modules to Enhance the Career Coaching Experience

Tuesday, January 18, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET

As a career coach, do you find yourself repeating the same information about how to format a cover letter or craft a resume bullet and wishing that you could spend more time digging deeper into the career process with the people you coach? In the time of COVID-19, many of us have begun working in the virtual space like never before and have seen the potential to engage students and alumni with technology in innovative ways that align with our missions. In 2020, NYU launched an online career modules website, built entirely in-house by career staff and student workers, to bring interactive, on-demand content to the community anywhere and anytime. The site features career content on a huge range of topics with videos, guides, quizzes and activities for a university audience with a wide-ranging set of needs. These online modules help prepare students and alumni before coaching appointments, introduce relevant resources, reinforce concepts with quick refreshers and create more opportunities to apply what they have learned in coaching.

Now is your chance to learn how to create a similar platform for your work with students. You will leave with the knowledge and tools to build a customized solution to meet the needs of your organization no matter its budget.
