Dear students!

We would like to inform you that KIMEP Career Center in collaboration with our companies-partners is launching the completely new project: “Career Planning and Management” course.

Career Planning and Management (CPM) is a course developed to give a very early start to the process of career planning and management. The course is the perfect tool for students who are ready to start their career and is open to all students regardless of study year or major, but is especially useful for students who are:

  • Preparing to apply for internships

  • Nearing graduation and seeking for the  first job

  • Uncertain about career goals and/or major options

The process involves thoughtful self-assessment, career exploration, planning the job search techniques, application, and interview process. Through industry expert’s support and resources, this course is designed to prepare students for success in any chosen career. Students will develop the habits and attitudes necessary to perform effectively on the job market. CPM course will help students to make a soft transition from college student to professional employee and give them insights and tools to develop and reach long-term career goals. This is a strategic career planning course, not just a “how to get a job” course.  The course is an investment in long-term look career options and career management tools.
