Professional Minors: Human Resources Career Panel  

On April 9, 2019, BSOBL faculty Dr. Anna Kayes and Dr. Ora Freedman, along with Dr. Dawn Ward, Dr. Heather Harris, and Dr. Virginia Iannone hosted Navigating the Workplace-An Interdisciplinary Perspective  for over 100 students  in Rockland Banquet Room. According to the organizers, the purpose of the event was to provide SU students with an opportunity to experience an academic interdisciplinary collaboration on a relevant topic: the contemporary workplace. 

The Navigating the Workplace-An Interdisciplinary Perspective provided students one large interdisciplinary class session where they had an opportunity to experience and resolve some common challenges faced at work through the lens of different disciplines. The faculty at this collaborative class session provided a variety of frameworks, tools, and perspectives to resolve these challenges.

This approach offered a range of expertise on topics that relate to common workplace challenges, and represented a broad cross-section of schools including the School of Business, School of Design, School of Sciences, and School of Humanities.

The scheduled topics and presenters:

Dr. Ora Freedman, Brown School of Business and Leadership, Topic ‘Labor Market Know-How or How to Think like an Economist’
 
Dr. Virginia Iannone, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Topic: ‘Transformational Leadership’
 
Dr. Dawn Ward, Beverly Fine School of the Sciences, Topic: ‘Job Search Tips’
 
Dr. Heather Harris, School of Design, Topic: ‘Traditional and Real Recruitment Practices’
 
Dr. Anna Kayes, Brown School of Business and Leadership, Topic: Finding Purpose and Meaning in the Workplace

Navigating the Workplace: An Interdisciplinary Perspective  

On Thursday, March 13th, students from Dr. Anna Kayes’ Organizational Leadership class and Ryan Clark’s Theatre Program participated in a “Leadership Storytelling” workshop where three theatre students posed as Amazon executives while business students networked and shared their personal stories of leadership with them.

After the networking session, theatre students Alex Gore, Adam Nelson, and Norman Greenwell gave feedback to the business students on how well they communicated their stories of leadership.

This is the second year Dr. Kayes and Ryan Clark have collaborated to create this unique and creative opportunity for their students. To learn more about Leadership Storytelling, read the post about how it all began.

Leadership Storytelling Workshop - Spring 2019

  

   

Business Administration Senior Kylie Shade spent last summer interning for Maryland state government as part of the Governor's Summer Internship Program (GSIP). Kylie was placed at the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance within the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.Kylie Schade

"I learned about how state government works, how a professional office runs, and how much regulations affect small businesses. Over the course of the summer, groups of four developed policy papers based on pressing Maryland issues. From that, I learned how to write a policy paper and present it to the governor's staff." says Kylie.

She learned about the Governor's Summer Internship Program through a friend who works for the state of Maryland. The GSIP is part of the Maryland Public Service Scholars Program which provides "students across Maryland the opportunity to develop as future leaders in Maryland’s public and social sectors."

Kylie describes a typical week during the internship as shadowing coworkers, attending outreach events, and becoming familiar with the Executive Order that created the unit that she worked in. "Everyone had different experiences," says Kylie "although, no fellow was ever the coffee person."  On Fridays, GSIP fellows take field trips; Kylie visited the State House in Annapolis and the White House in Washington D.C.

Applications for the GSIP are accepted in the spring for the following summer. The application process includes an application form, one essay, four short answer responses, a resume, unofficial transcripts, and two references. More about the application process, eligibility, and requirements can be found on the GSIP website.

After her internship, Kylie was offered a part time job at the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance and works there now. "Other fellows were also offered positions too" says Kyle, "This internship is also an amazing resume-booster. Employers, especially in government are impressed with a student who had this experience. I have had multiple job offers since completing this program."

When asked why she thinks other Stevenson students should apply for this internship, Kylie says "Networking! I cannot emphasize this aspect enough! I have met so many wonderful people, that I still stay in touch with, through this internship."

Congrats Kylie! And thank you for sharing your experience!
