The Career Center has designed and implemented several in-class career modules in collaboration with faculty members across different schools and departments. In addition to delivering the MBTI assessment to freshmen students taking RHET 1010 classes, the certified staff has also administered the Strong Interest Inventory in other classes to help students focus their career goals. Job search skills including resume writing, interviewing and networking were common components in career modules delivered in classes and with student groups such as Lead scholars, Tomorrow's Leaders and Al Ghurair scholars. Individual mock interviews were conducted by the Career Center staff to students in the business communication course to simulate the real life experience of the interviewing process.
