In the 21st century, huge changes are redefining the nature of work and careers. A guaranteed job after graduation, a job for life with a steady climb up the career ladder and a gold watch at retirement are yesterday’s realities. The average adult will transition in employment many times, either by choice or by force. With Bureau of Labor statistics reporting in 2008 that a typical worker’s tenure with his/her current employer was 4.1 years, it’s conceivable that a current AAP graduate student could expect to change jobs 5 – 7 times in the course of his career(s).
Advanced Academic Programs equips full-time working adults with knowledge essential for advancing their professional careers. Career Services partners with AAP students and equips them with strategies and tactics essential for continued career development and career transition. With a focus on learning job-search skills for a lifetime, AAP students become an active participant in their own continuing career development.
Current AAP students and alumni are encouraged to utilize Optimal Resume, a career management resource tool where you can search for job openings, create your own professional website to share with network contacts, and develop career materials for your job search. Students and alumni should use their jhu email and password to login.
