Speaking the Language of ACES: Helping Your Students Talk about Their Transferable Skills

January 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm CST Free

Registration Deadline: MON. 1/11/21 

The COVID-19 pandemic has left scores of people unemployed. With many businesses shutting down due to mandatory closures and a slow economy, too many workers are facing the prospect of looking for a new job. Do your students know how to talk about their skills? Do you give them opportunities to discuss their strengths and language for explaining their weaknesses to a potential employer? Helping our students recognize and name their transferable skills is one of the most important things that we can do to help give them a competitive edge in the job market.

Join us for the ACES Winter Webinar for a chance to explore how to help students develop the language they need for talking about their skills. We will be joined by a senior employment counselor from DEED who will talk about the Transferable Skills Matrix; Alison Wilcox, Career Pathways Coordinator for Metro South ABE; and Career Navigator Stephanie Beja. We will look at some classroom resources and share ideas for fostering student confidence and success.

If you require ASL Interpretation, please contact Gail Rutan at grutan01@hamline.edu
