CS204: Professional Presence
Unit 1 Overview
Success in your chosen career is defined by many factors. As you will see in this course, professionalism is one of the key factors in every career. What is professional presence and how do you maintain and develop this presence both in your career and lifestyle? Professionals come in all shapes and sizes and are not recognized just by their attire, where they work, or the job title they have. It is their attitude and how they express themselves to others that set them apart. This class is designed to help you identify and understand the concept of professional presence and in the process will help prepare you to build and maintain your professional image. You will start by meeting your classmates and sharing ideas and perceptions about each other. Then, you will complete a self-assessment that will help you to examine your current perceptions about professional presence. As the course progresses, you will engage in activities to improve in areas such as personal image, intelligence about social and professional settings, and online communication. In Unit 1, you will complete a self-assessment on professionalism and start to reflect on the results. Outcomes:
