On February 26, ECU’s Career Center – Mr. John Stowe – gave our Professional Development Anthro class an excellent presentation emphasizing resume writing, career opportunities, and skill building. Without a doubt, Mr. Stowe’s presentation was well-received by the class and they took alot of notes on this very practical lecture.
In fact, Mr. Stowe highlighted such issues as resume writing guidelines, the four types of resumes, ECU Career Net, O-Net online, and Pirate Alumni.com. One of the areas of his presentation that I thought helped students the most was his mentioniong of “transferrable skills.” Transferrable Skills are portable skills that deliberately (or inadvertently) take with you to other life experiences. Graduating with an Anthropology degree which is apart of School of Liberal Arts, gives our anthropology students skills that other college graduates simply do not have. Thus, Mr. Stowe stated that those who graduate with a liberal arts degree will be highly employable when they graduate.
THIS IS EXACTLY THE TYPE OF INFORMATION THAT MY STUDENTS NEEDED TO HEAR!
