The Cooperative Education & Internship Association (CEIA) provides professional development opportunities for students, higher ed professionals, and employers engaged in work-integrated learning opportunities. CEIA hosts conferences, conducts research, and most recently posted an article about effective goal-setting techniques for interns and young professionals. Check out the article here!
Here are a few highlights from the post:
“Taking just a bit of time to reflect on the experience and knowledge you hope to gain can have huge benefits toward your professional and personal success.”
“In a study conducted by Dr. Gail Matthews at Dominican University of California they looked at the most effective goal setting strategies.”
“Based on the conclusions from that study I have developed 4 critical steps in establishing and accomplishing your professional goals.”
