Human Resources Mission, Vision, and Strategic Goals For You

Development Program Opportunities

Human Resources offers two career opportunity programs. Open registration is announced through Purdue Today.

  • Moving Forward in Four is designed to help employees strengthen their internal opportunities at Purdue. During four virtual, interactive sessions focused on developing a personal brand, composing a strong resume and cover letter and preparing for a job interview, participants explore topics like the university’s hiring process, LinkedIn best practices, resume and cover letter myths and more.
    • The sessions are designed to build upon one another, and attendees should be prepared to participate in all four.
      • Create Your Path with Personal Brand, Social Media and Networking
      • Resume Builder
      • The Interview
      • Workshop
        • Participants will meet individually with Talent Acquisition professionals to review their resume and participate in a mock interview.
    •  SuccessFactors Learning direct link
  • Develop Me 2.0 is a cohort-based career exploration program that provides staff with mentoring, coaching, networking and job shadowing opportunities over a span of four to six months. 
    • DevelopMe 2.0 allows staff to connect with other participants in their cohort and meet with two Purdue employee mentors of their choice.
    • Before selecting their mentors, members of the cohort complete a 30-question career initiative assessment, which introduces them to behaviors that increase job satisfaction and enhance future career possibilities. Participants then build a career plan by identifying their work and project preferences, creating short-term and long-term goals, assessing their work-life values and skill sets and seeking out relevant career options within the university.
