The Cy™ GROW initiative will expand the use of the Career Readiness Competencies by encouraging areas to incorporate them into student employee job descriptions and implementing a campus-wide assessment tool that will allow student employees and supervisors to discuss competency development and areas for continued growth. In addition, we will be incorporating a set of guided reflection questions for student employees and their supervisors to explore multiple times during the period of employment. This will further identify ways students can apply their knowledge and skills in workplace settings.

Questions to think about:

  1. 1. How is this job fitting in with your academics?
  2. 2. What are you learning here at work that is helping with your school?
  3. 3. What are you learning in class that you can apply here at work?
  4. 4. Can you give me a couple examples of things you are using here at work you will use in your chosen profession?
