In a blog post titled “5 Graduation Gift Ideas for Your Intern”, published 6 years ago on April 25, 2016, I noted that many companies take their intern to brunch or lunch and that gifts can also be more personal and more tailored to the intern’s style, hobbies, or preferences. The 5 intern graduation gift ideas I recommended are:
- A gift certificate or gift card (treat yourself)
- Company item with logo (shirt, messenger bag, water bottle)
- Journal or themed notepad with a pen (record achievements)
- Pampering or shaving gift set (self-care)
- Congratulations card with money ($25-$100)
Gift ideas that money can’t buy include:
- Professional Portfolio
- Letter of recommendation
- A full-time job
Today I am adding enrollment in the Uplevel Your Position Career Development Program to the list as a great gift idea for college graduates. If you’re wondering how to help the social work graduates in your life transition into the workforce, consider gifting them a spot in the Uplevel Your Position Career Development Program. Many students graduate with fear, pressure, and indecision instead of a clear strategy to obtain a fulfilling job in their field of interest. Every college graduate wants to have a long-term successful career doing work that they love – the Uplevel Your Position Program is the gift that keeps on giving.
I love supporting students and understand that individual support is key. There are only 12 persons accepted in each cohort. The program will only be offered twice a year – spring semester and fall semester, so don’t miss out. The next cohort is not until the fall 2022 semester.
Class of 2022, this is a great gift for YOU!!
If you want to elevate your career confidence and competence, apply for the spring cohort of the Uplevel Your Position Career Development Program which launches May 1, 2022.
The application period ends on April 27, 2022.
