After completing the unique value proposition module, I could see a lot of value in using this concept in my FSSE 1000 classes. Having students look at what their unique value proposition is, and what would give them the edge over someone else applying for the same job. Having students REALLY think about marketing themselves for a position and investing in themselves to make them the most qualified and attractive candidate for their dream position.
So many of our students come to college with big dreams. While I don't want to be the crusher of dreams; I do want them to take a realistic look at what steps they are going to have to take and what sacrifices are going to have to be made to get to where they want to go. I believe that the first semester of college is the place to get that realistic picture, map out that realistic path, and create that realistic plan to their success.
