Our ASPIRE to a Career learning community provides an excellent opportunity to connect with other students in and outside the classroom that are also exploring their career choices. Together, students will discover their unique interests, values, and skills; match those to potential occupations and UW-Stout majors.They will learn about personality types, and how their individual strengths and weaknesses can affect not only their job-seeking process, but also their professional development once they land a job.

In addition, students will be able to discuss how motivation can impact career choices, and how one's personal values can affect career decision-making processes. This learning community is sponsored by ASPIRE-Student Support Services and is available to eligible students only. Ninety-one percent of the students who completed the Career Exploration course in the fall of 2011 said they would recommend it to other first-year students.

This allows coursework to be meaningful beyond the traditional limits of the classroom. By the end of the semester we will have blurred the line between our academic and personal lives, in order to align our individual identities, motivations and values with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop and succeed. Furthermore, this will be the foundation for a long-term community and network of students that can be useful to you long after this course, through college, and into your first careers.
