· Read Your CareerPassport Emails – Even though this semester’s classes will be ending soon, you’ll still receive your weekly emails every Monday. The CareerPassport Team will continue to help keep you motivated during the holidays.
· Calandar CareerPassport Events for 2014 – CareerPassport will be having many wonderful events in 2014. We will be hearing from many inspired professionals at our lecture series including President Holland, Tiffany Peterson, and Ryan and Ashleigh Di Lello from "So You Think You Can Dance." There will also be monthly “Hot Topic” Discussion Groups, not to mention the Engaged Learning Retreat and The CareerPassport Awards Banquet in April. Plan your semester now so that you can make it to these great events. You can register for these events by going to the CareerPassport OrgSync Portal under “Events.”
· Set New CareerPassport Goals – Decide now what you’d like to do in the CareerPassport Program in 2014 and write some goals as to how you will accomplish it. For those of you who are Track Activities or ELUD Participants make it a goal to prepare yourself for the CareerPassport Mentoring Program. Decided what you would like to get out of it, and how you will work with your mentor.
· CareerPassport Incentives – As a way to achieve those goals you will set for yourself, look at the incentives CareerPassport has to offer and strive to achieve them. If you are working on track activities, work towards the “One-a-Week” incentive to earn a free meal on campus each month. Or participate in the "Passport Incentive" by getting your passport stamped each time you attend a CareerPassport event to receive a coupon for a free item provided by donors like FatCats, Hangtime, and Pier 49 Pizza. And a super easy incentive to obtain is to always wear your CareerPassport t-shirt to all CareerPassport events to earn a candy bar!
We’d like to congratulate Scott Twitchell for being the CareerPassport Participant of the Month for December. Scott is an ELUD participant, and has attended many CareerPassport Events. In his spotlight, Scott said,
"I am attracted to the CareerPassport program because it allows me to explore more of my options on campus without being graded. With the CareerPassport Program I am able to apply what I am learning to my degree in theatre arts education and after listening to Mayor Mia Love I know that my degree will benefit me in all aspects of my life."
