Career Coaching

Supported by GT NSF ADVANCE funding, CoE ADVANCE Professor Jane Ammons developed a career coaching practice that allows a faculty member to receive advice regarding her vita and career building from different mentors during one session.

A faculty mentor will sometimes conduct discussions with another faculty member to strategize about career prospects, an arrangement that consider careers prospects and possibilities in one-on-one conversations organized over a long period of time.

But useful mentoring can also take place in other ways. Dubbed “speed mentoring,” the ADVANCE career coaching session, as developed by Ammons, takes place in a short period of time and enables each faculty candidate to hear different perspectives from senior colleagues.

Georgia Tech sponsored Career Coaching sessions at annual conferences and periodic workshops during the grant's duration.
