PLAN Workshop - Career Colloquium

Description. In this intensive, half-day workshop requested by YOU, we'll cover career basics from top to bottom.

Topics to be covered include job materials (resumes, CVs, and cover letters), job interviewing, transferable skills, and making a PLAN for your next steps. Don't miss out on this opportunity to reflect on your path and tackle the details of your search. Whether you're job searching this coming year or preparing for your future, NOW is the time to PLAN. Lunch will be provided and registration is limited for this interactive program. Participants are encouraged to bring job materials with them. **Registration closes Monday, July 9, 2018. At least 10 people are needed for the program. Should this requisite number not be reached, the colloquium will be cancelled.
