College of Arts and Sciences: CAS Advantage – FLAGs


(upbeat music) – The Flag program is
extremely beneficial. As an employer, we can
train on technical skills but we find it difficult to
train on transferable skills, because those are skills that
you learn through experiences. What’s nice about the Flag program, is students are capturing those skills that they’ve learned through
the educational experience and then applying them to the workplace. – [Narrator] The skills
and knowledge that you gain throughout your college career extend far beyond those obtained
in the classroom. The ability to articulate these strengths during graduate school
or employment interviews can make all the difference. The CAS Advantage incorporates Flags. Fundamental Learning Outcomes,
Achievements, and Goals, as a means to capture the progression of your transferable skills. It allows you to capture and reflect on your experiences and knowledge during your undergraduate experience in order to effectively articulate them on resumes and in interviews. The Flags are divided
into eight categories. Innovation, Creativity, and Technology. Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. Communication and Listening. Diversity and Inclusion. Career Management. Teamwork and Collaboration. Professionalism, Work
Ethic, and Integrity. And Leadership. – The Flags program prepared me to demonstrate the value of
my undergraduate experiences with future graduate
schools and employers. (upbeat music)
