It's a new course, but I think it would be really beneficial! I took a similar non-credit course for resume-writing and co-op prep and I thought it was really useful. And being in first year, I think this would be really useful for you (it's only 6 hours of class!). If I were you, I'd definitely take it!
For more info about it:
