Here’s what we have coming up this week:
Monday, April 15: Career Development
Rare is the person who lands in their career destination in their first job. For most of us, your career is a path of growth, development and change as you gain skills and perspective on your path to a goal. Learn how to identify that goal and map your professional path to getting there.
Tuesday, April 16: Decision Making
Life is a serious of choices, some more obvious than others, but most with the potential to make a significant impact on our lives. Having choices can be liberating and empowering, but sometimes having too many choices can be paralyzing. Knowing what decisions to make comes from a combination of research, instinct and self-confidence.
Thursday, April 18: Digital Literacy
“E-mail us your resume.” “Apply online.” These days, it seems like almost everything in the job-application realm is done online. If you haven’t had an opportunity to get too familiarized with computers and the internet, it can be hard enough before you factor in how quickly things are changing! In this session, you will get up to speed on current trends in technology and how to navigate the digital world to better prepare you for your job search.
