Lumberjacks GROW

About

The Lumberjacks GROW (Guided Reflection on Work) program serves two purposes:

  • Collect data to better understand the experience of students who work (on- and off-campus) and/or are involved in organizations while attending SFA.
  • Assist employed and/or involved students in making connections between what they are learning through their experiences and how it connects to the transferable skills that employers are seeking.

The Lumberjacks GROW Page and Student Instructions can be accessed via Handshake, and we strongly encourage student employees and/or students involved in campus organizations to complete this program. The assessment program involves a short survey and a virtual mock interview, which gathers information on the student's experiences in five key areas: communication, decision-making, influence, intercultural fluency and teamwork. 

The virtual mock interview, completed through Interviewing.com, provides the student the chance to answer commonly asked interview questions that require them to articulate the skills they are gaining that can be translated into their careers.

Specially trained student career advocates will provide individualized feedback on the student's virtual mock interview, encouraging the student to reflect on how they communicate their experiences, their interview skills, and how each can be improved. Feedback on the students and results from the survey can also be provided to on-campus employers, if desired.

Students must complete both parts of the assignment - the survey and the mock interview - to participate fully.

To participate in Lumberjacks GROW, students only need 30 minutes in a quiet space with a webcam-enabled computer or tablet. If you have questions or need assistance, please reach out to the CCPD at ccpd@sfasu.edu or 936.468.3305.
