Preparing For Success In Graduate School
The first hour of the seminar will cover topics such as how to determine the right graduate school and the right program, documentation proof of LD required to receive special accommodation services, deciding whether or not to apply to universities/programs which require the GRE or MAT, the importance of time management and organization skills, tips for avoiding procrastination, developing effective study skills, and how to achieve success as a graduate student throughout the completion of a Master’s program.
During the second hour of this seminar, I will discuss topics regarding what type of jobs or careers may be available after completing your Master’s, what to expect when working in the field of community mental health, and professional development opportunities (i.e., post-master’s certifications, brief overview of licensure and continuing education requirements (post-state licensure).
In 2013, full-time, year-round working women were paid 78 percent of what men were paid. That number rose just 1 percent since 2012 — a change that is not significantly different. Unfortunately, the pay gap is worse for African American women, which now make 64 percent of what men were paid down from 69 percent and Hispanic women make 54 percent, down from 57 percent. Asian American women’s salaries show the smallest gender pay gap, at 90 percent of white men’s earnings. The Start Smart salary negotiation workshop can provide alumni who are approaching the job market the knowledge and skills to negotiate salaries and benefits.
