#1 Introduction Cover Slide Glad to be here Meet you; away from your workspace; Your chance to network with others and be inspired! How many of you know what you want to be when you grow up? Got me thinking to when I graduated from HS… Go round room – Why are you here?
Today’s Agenda Read what is on slide Lots of Handouts (will mention as we go along) Time Line Other logistics
Read Chancellor’s quote In addition…. UNMC 2007 – 2010 Strategic Plan (which is on line): Critical Success Factor: Employee Loyalty Targets increased focus and opportunity for internal advancement –( grow our own ) UNMC website devoted to Career Development (resources) will expand more on that later Developing applicant profiles to alert individuals when a new posting comes along that fits their interest inventory information Internal/external job prospects: We are running X of job openings per week; mostly in administrative, healthcare, IT, Research positions. There is more competition for jobs because of the internet exposure and quick response. External market also is looking pretty healthy……
A brief explanation of the components of Career Development………we will go into this more later………….
Firstly………..YOU Read…Every individual bears the primary responsibility for his or her own career. While employees in the past felt that the organization held the responsibility of leading them through their career, the changes in the social contract between employers and employees have necessitated that everyone recognize and accept responsibility. Individuals should be proactive in planning their own careers but understand that their organization can still be a means of support. Career Exploration Do you initial homework. Find out what you want to do – Do you have a career interest but don’t know what steps to take to make it happen? Do you see jobs on the UNMC posting list that you would like to apply for but do not meet the minimum qualifications? Do these posted jobs sound interesting but you don’t know if they would necessarily be a career choice? Do you know how to go about becoming qualified for any of these jobs? Do you know what to do to move into a leadership role? Do you have any idea of what you want to be when you grow up?
Other considerations: Stages of Life (those crossroads --starting out, mid life, close to retirement) Personal considerations – family, money available Movement on the Career Ladder – moving up, down, laterally, to another ladder (job
The first part of “career development” is career planning (as an individual YOU) These are general goals/steps that you can take to make things happen Read these We will go into more detail throughout the presentation…….
The second part of “career development” is “career management” ; ie, identifies the role the organization (UNMC, your department, your boss) plays in laying the ground work that will enhance career development. Such as… Read from slide
Referring back to “career exploration” that we talked about previously, there are a number of tools that will help to identify personal abilities and interests and determine where you are today, where you want to be and what gaps need to be filled to get there – “doing your homework” Self Assessment Tools: Career Self-management Resource Guide (handout for your immediate use) Self study books that help you discover your own career values, abilities and preferences (library, or book stores) Web-based career planning tools that include assessments, interactive exercises and internet resource searching capabilities In house resource – Dave Carver, Director, Counseling & Student Development Dave does a detailed educational and work history and has will have you complete a career interest and skills inventory. This is a computerized questionnaire that gives a comprehensive profile of both general and specific career options. In some cases, he uses a personality inventory such as Myers-Briggs to assess communication styles and preferences. The whole process usually takes two 50 minute counseling sessions about 2 weeks apart. Informational Interview After you utilize the self-assessment tools, you should be able to design a career plan and assess career path options within UNMC, the university system or possibly outside.
Look for opportunity within your own department Communication with your manager… goals and ambitions Coaching, if applicable to your situation Learn the business of your dept. Try to understand how your dept.’s goals/mission tie in with other units and the global goals of UNMC Look for ways to improve processes Go beyond the normal expectations of the position Developing new skills and enhancing current skills Come up with new ideas and take on new challenges Ask to be cross trained on other jobs within the dept, as appropriate Ask to expand tasks /responsibilities – to stretch and increase depth of your job (planning, organizing, controlling and evaluation skills) Show a willingness and enthusiasm to participate in team projects Provide timely responses to questions from others Be prepared for meetings and arrive on time
EXPAND EDUCATION/KNOWLEDGE (handout UNMC scholarship program) Many ways to do this…… Information Technology Classes on Campus (website) to develop greater skills in computer applications Seminars/workshops in house and off site Foundations for Success Classes of interest at other local colleges, such as Workplace Effectiveness, Leadership & management, Personal Development, Health, Safety and Wellness, etc. There are also many of these topics on line for self study. Use Library, bookstores, the Web to research information about your areas of interest. Seek out someone who is already in the career field of interest who can provide information, advice, possibly be a role model and assist with networking. This may start with a request for an “informational interview”.
JOB PERFORMANCE Ask for performance expectations at the beginning (don’t wait for formal appraisal time) Include career development as part of the performance review Ask for feedback on a regular basis As for specific coaching from supervisor to help attain career goals Remember that your current and past supervisors may be asked to provide a reference on your behalf Don’t burn bridges
H.R.

Let’s talk about careers at UNMC Talk about the variety of jobs at UNMC (mention specific jobs) This information can be helpful to you, your family, and friends. Most people think of UNMC as having mostly “medical” related jobs, but as you know from working here, most are not. When we merged with TNMC, we lost many of our entry level jobs, such as food service and custodial services. We do not have many “entry level” jobs; ie, just a HS education and minimal experience. We also lost many of our “medical” type jobs. Some jobs stand alone – in your nitch - not on a career path – mainly interested in improving the job, receiving appropriate recognition for work done. There are also jobs within UNMC that have a definite career path. Mention corresponding handouts for more details on jobs, qualifications and pay ranges. Alphabetically within each job family.
Mention other positions that are not listed here

Other positions in healthcare
