InsideTrack Training & Development Specialists Brad McKerihan and Tina Jones walk you through the Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes and Beliefs (KSABs) needed to address career and career-related questions. Aligning the KSABs and creating a plan can help students find their path forward in these troubling times.

Due to the coronavirus, the career services office at many colleges and universities is expanding to an “all hands on deck” approach that incorporates additional student-facing staff members. As a way to offer support, we’ve asked our experts to create a series of short videos, each spotlighting a different career resource with tips, how-tos and practical applications you can use with students at any stage of their career path. In addition, each video is accompanied by a shareable, downloadable tool or worksheet, designed to supplement the information you just learned.

Tools and Worksheets

Specially designed handouts and worksheets provide an additional way for you to help students hone in on things they can do, right now, to maximize their chances at reaching their career goals — even during a time of extreme turbulence in the job market. Each sheet gives you a way to take what you’ve learned from the videos above and put those concepts into practice with your students. They’re yours to download, review, share and use.
