Summer 2020 update: ASAP training is being held virtually
Advancing Students As Professionals training is an interactive and engaging look into the world of work! While ASAP training is mandatory for all new on-campus student employees, it is also highly recommended for returning employees or those employed by other entities. Topics covered during the training include:
- Phone etiquette
- Customer service
- Appropriate work attire
- Ethics and confidentiality
The Center for Career and Professional Development recognizes the importance of preparing students for their transition from SFA to the world of work. As student learning extends beyond the walls of the classroom, on-campus employment presents the perfect opportunity for experiential learning. ASAP training is designed to acclimate new student workers to the standards of employment at SFA, as well as to help them realize the importance and relativity of professionalism in their current positions. Skills, traits, and habits developed while working on-campus with faculty and staff directly impact their success in future careers.
Training Schedule - via Zoom
- 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays
- 1 to 2 p.m. Fridays
After registering for ASAP training, you will receive the Zoom link in a confirmation email.
Note: If you are legitimately unable to attend during these times, one-on-one training is available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your training.
While we encourage every student employee to attend ASAP Training, it is only mandatory for those students who are new employees of the university. New student employees must register and attend ASAP training before they can begin work on-campus or be placed on payroll.
