The purpose of PRT 375 is to help students adequately prepare for their internship and for their career following graduation. Students will explore internship opportunities and explore the best practices for internship and/or job seeking through resume preparation, practicing interview skills, utilizing social media, and learning job negotiating skills.

PRT 375 is being redesigned to incorporate the career preparation course content currently taught in PRT 477 for PRT majors and in PRT 486 for Sport Management majors.   Faculty and students felt that the career preparation material needed to be introduced to students in their junior year rather than their senior year. PRT 477 and PRT 486 are being dropped from their respective degree programs.


The content moved from PRT 477 and PRT 486 to PRT 375 includes personal branding and social media, LinkedIN, salary negotiation and finances, a job shadowing experience, preparation for graduate school, wordpress and the development of an online portfolio, developing interview skills and participation in a professional development workshop.
