Jump Start Your Entry Into the Workplace!
The LAUNCH program is designed for full-time students who want to ensure their first step into the workplace puts them on the right path to career success. LAUNCH should be done concurrently with university study, ideally during a student’s junior and senior years. In today’s economy, you need every possible advantage to make certain your first step into the competitive job market is successful.
Components of the LAUNCH Certificate Program:
Focused Curriculum – courses teach practical, real-world skills necessary to compete in today’s workplace. Certificates can be completed in about one year and are offered in a variety of career fields, such as: • Biotechnology Manufacturing Processes Assistant • Business Analysis • Clinical Trials Administration • Design Media • Financial Analysis • Paralegal • Project Team Management • Quality Assurance and Control • Regulatory Affairs Specialist • Sustainable Business Practices • Technical Documentation • and now most of the 100+ certificates that Extension has to offer.
Courses are offered one night/week where you learn side-by-side with working professionals.
It is the responsibility of the student to pay all textbook, lab or other materials fees associated with course. Otherwise, all course fees are covered by the program,* with the exception of a
$60 certificate fee at the beginning of the program. * Certain restrictions apply.
You must be willing to complete the certificate as well as participate in surveys before, during and after the completion of LAUNCH.
Each LAUNCH student works with a coach who acts as a mentor throughout the program. The coach and student meet quarterly to identify their unique skills and career focus, develop those important “soft skills” employers are looking for in today’s job candidates and act as a resource to services/programs to help make the difference in landing that all-important first job after graduation.
We hope to see you at the information session tomorrow to learn more about how you can take advantage of this amazing opportunity!
