Track Your Progress

Track Your Progress

To help you with tracking your progress in the Covenant Career Accelerator Program, please see the example guide below.  We encourage you to create a tracking system that works best for you to be successful in the program. For example, you could simply copy or recreate the tables below in Google Sheets or Excel and fill with your own experiences. We will ask questions about the information on these tables in the end of semester survey, so tracking the information throughout the term on your own will make it easy to transfer the most accurate information into the survey.

NoteThe professional witness does not need to sign or approve anything. This is a professional representative who was present for your experience who could corroborate your attendance for our office if necessary.
