Today we had our first intern training with a cohort of nine Sierra Students from our Nevada County Campus. The day started with a hands on workshop covering three different New World of Work (NWOW) Modules delivered by Aleda Vaughn, Sierra College Welding faculty and NWOW facilitator. The modules covered were Communication, Analysis/Solution Mindset, & Entrepreneurial Mindset
After completing the NWOW modules students registered on launchpath so that they could receive digital badges. All of the students were also registered on career catalyst so that we can begin to place them in internships.
We finished the day off with a workshop on resumes, portfolios, and LinkedIn facilitated by Janna Evans who is a Reentry Transition Specialist for the Contra Costa County Office of Education.
