Exploring Your Potential (EYP) is an academic program designed to motivate students to take personal ownership of their career plans, think more strategically about their future, and define their own success. It will allow for an institution to more effectively leverage their career-related resources. EYP is used as a precursor program to career center activities, helping young people define their career goals, identify their personal value proposition, market their potential, and activate their career plan. EYP has been tested at several universities with measurable improvement in student career preparedness.
EYP is readily integrated into a course or set of courses that have career readiness as part of its student outcome or it can be deployed as a standalone program associated with the school’s career services. Career centers require that students complete EYP before they begin building resumes and honing interview skills. EYP is also used to enhance the effectiveness of career-awareness and job-placement services.
Exploring Your Potential is offered in partnership with Bloomberg Businessweek B-School Connection. This partnership allows the student access to the B-School Connection Resource Center and a subscription to Businessweek. Your Success Now! (www.ysn.com) developed the interactive EYP courses using contemporary, dynamic, and most importantly engaging multi-media instructional content.
Exploring Your Potential is a co-sponsor for the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education Student Case-Study Competition. The 2017 competition will be held in San Francisco, California April 19th and 20th during the IACBE Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting.
