A couple months prior to their final semester, begin communicating to them that you will be helping them prepare to transition from campus to career by exploring a video series that will begin framing faith-work-career integration and life after college as a Christian. [If you will be asking the student to financially invest in their own preparation, then communicate that a healthy part of individual development is taking personal financial responsibility and that the cost is roughly equal to eating out once a week for a month.]
[For campus ministers.] During break between semesters, have them go on-line and review the Introduction video. Also, if you are a campus minister and meet weekly or every other week, you could use the curriculum for those meeting times to go over the video lessons together, or have them do it independently and get together to discuss. Below is a suggested format. We also encourage you to invite seasoned Christian marketplace leaders to your discussions. Both students and leaders love the interaction, and the leaders sometimes end up becoming donors and mentors. Your ministry’s donor development officer can help you identify guest leader candidates.
[For International Student Ministers] The material is not designed to make someone an expert in cross-cultural competencies, nor undertake the huge and complex task to address every cultural context (whether one’s home culture, work culture, or host culture.) It points users to “think home,” whether that be where they came from, where they currently are, or where they anticipate being after college.
[For university staff.] You may simply have the students do the video series independently, with little involvement from your staff. Once they complete the series, they could simply submit their certificate of completion, created by Baton Exchange, to you.
