  • The University Career Development Center’s PDI Learning Outcomes and Changes
    The University Career Development Center’s PDI is a free program designed to enhance University of Arkansas students’ professionalism. Each student who joins the program is assigned a career coach who guides them through 7 competencies:
    • Self-Awareness
    • Career Exploration
    • Resume Writing
    • Search Strategies
    • Reflection of Career Experiences
    • Interview Skills
    • Networking with Professionals

    According to results from a recent student survey by the National Association of
    Colleges and Employers (Student Survey 2010), the likelihood of a student getting a
    job offer increased with the frequency of career center use. Students who used the
    career center four or more times a semester were more likely to have job offers
    than those who used it once a semester. The results also indicated use of career
    services resulted in higher median salaries, and median salaries climbed with
    increased use.

    PDI prepares students to be competitive candidates in today’s market by giving them individual attention to improve in the competency areas they most need.

    Last year, 144 students from all university colleges completed PDI. These students increased their knowledge about how to research job openings and graduate school programs, gain experience in their field, introduce themselves to employers, write resumes and prepare for interviews.

  • This year, taking the StrengthsFinder, 30-minute online assessment, is a Self-Awareness PDI requirement. StrengthsQuest is used at more than 600 schools and universities in North America.
