The Career Center offers on-campus, for-credit, elective career courses. These courses (PRD 2101, CSD 2101, ECS 2101, PUBH 2101) allow students to explore their career interests and opportunities, learn about the numerous career resources available, and get ahead in their career plans long before they graduate.
Professional skills are taught in the class, including interviewing, networking, and professional etiquette. Students will develop and refine their résumé, craft cover letters, network with industry professionals, and explore methods to stand out in the job search. In addition, career courses help students find internships and job opportunities while still enrolled as students at Baylor.
I originally didn't have any idea about how to go about the job search and taking PRD 2101 gave me a lot of guidance. I attended Academy Day, hosted by the Career Center, and had an interview the next day. That interview led to an invite to Academy's headquarters in Katy, TX where I participated in an executive mixer and then two more interviews the next morning. I excelled in the interviews using guidance and instruction on the interview process from PRD 2101, and I was able to obtain a job offer as an Assistant Buyer in Academy's Executive Trainee program.
