Coursera Power Onboarding MOOC

Modified: September 10, 2014

“Power Onboarding” is a Coursera course (MOOC) about quickly transitioning to a new job or work environment which would be useful for any graduate student completing their degree and entering the academic or corporate environment.

Research has shown that an actively followed power onboarding plan will allow an individual to reach proficiency in their new position up to 30% faster than the typical transitioning manager. In this course, students will develop their own personal onboarding plan, allowing them to contribute sooner and be eligible for promotion earlier. What’s more, the organization has the benefit of your value added sooner.

Power Onboarding will provide practical, easy-to-use tools to help individuals transition into new jobs. The six-week course is free and begins October 12. Throughout the course, participants will learn how to create their own personalized onboarding plans. Weekly content will include lecture videos, reading, quizzes, and personal reflection.

The course will start on October 12th and will contain six class sessions ending November 29th.  Visit the course's Coursea website for more information.
