Stevenson University Freshmen Find Their Inner Child
October 26, 2005

As children, students always think about what they want to be when
they grow up. Freshmen at Stevenson University will turn the tables as
they find their inner child at the annual Career ArchitectureSM Freshman Lego Challenge, on November 10. The event is part of National Career Month, sponsored by the University's career services team.
Freshmen will use the Legos to build visual representations of one
of the four building blocks of Career Architecture, a unique process of
self-discovery taught by the Career HQ staff at Stevenson University.
"This fun event will give the students an opportunity to work
together while putting a personal touch on the process they have just
started to undergo," says Ellen Yerman, Executive
Director of Career Services and Cooperative Education at SU. A panel of
judges will award prizes to the three teams with the best designs.
Career Architecture includes four elements - Self-Discovery, Career
Development Foundations, Career Exploration and Career Preparation. By
learning more about themselves and their values, students can better
choose a career path, Yerman says.
There are nine events planned this year at Stevenson University,
including mock interviews, workshops on networking and interviewing,
chances to talk to professionals about finances and government jobs,
and a Networking/Etiquette Dinner on November 7, which gives students the opportunity to work on small talk and the rules behind professional table manners.
Stevenson University will host the First National Career Conference in April 2006 to share the success story of Career Architecture.
