The University’s Bennett Career Services Center
recently held a successful Transition to Practice event for the second year
, while adding a new Career and Resource Fair to the mix. The Transition to Practice initiative was originally initiated to help provide students’ access to resources and the tools necessary to successfully transition from lives as students to emerging healthcare professionals.
During the now annual Transition to Practice, students were invited to attend four life skill sessions from local guest speakers:
Held simultaneously to the sessions, was a “one stop shop” event of vendors, 40 in all, who were ready to talk to the students about entry-level careers or other services they may need soon after graduation. Vendors participating in the event ranged from ACS Consultants, Inc. to West Point Optical.
Overall, the event was a success and beneficial for the students who participated. “We are very happy with the turnout and feedback about this year’s Transition to Practice event, especially the inaugural Career & Resources Fair,” said Ryan Hollister, MS, associate director of Bennett Career Services Center. “The Bennett Career Services Center will continue to provide the students of Salus University with access to invaluable information and resources through future events and programs as they prepare to transition from Salus into their careers as professionals dedicated to health and well-being.”
