What do you want to do with the rest of your life? What a huge question! There is so much pressure and so much is at stake. If you’re like most, you have little more than a vague idea of what you want your career to look like. This workshop offers you three ways that you can start making progress toward living your dream life, even if you’re not sure what that is yet.

  • First, we will talk about how to find opportunities that feel custom-made for you. While everyone else is chasing the same few options, you will learn where the interesting work is happening and how you can get involved. Let’s find your next job or internship!
  • Second, we’ll talk about how to land that position. A few small actions can make you stand out in a noisy world. It has nothing to do with your accomplishments, grades, or what classes you’ve taken. Instead, we’ll focus on building real connections with your future colleagues and leveraging them to actually get hired!
  • Lastly, we’ll talk about what to do when you get to work. Every day is a new chance to build, or tear apart, your career. From inter-office politics to prioritizing your workload, we’re going to make sure you know what to do to make sure your supervisor is absolutely thrilled with their decision to bring you on.

Let’s get together and start connecting you to your dreams - this is how the world changes!
