CAREER CHAT 101: DESIGN YOUR DREAM JOB

July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

FREE

About This Event
Very few of us graduate from school with a clear idea of what we want our careers to look like. Even when we think we know what we want, there are all sorts of obstacles to landing the right job. And worst of all, when we’ve finally gotten that job that we think will make us happy, it doesn’t. A Gallup study found that nearly 70% of people feel disengaged by their work. In other words, they work because they have to, not because they want to. If that sounds like you, then join us for this solution-oriented event. We will help you to discover what matters most when it comes to finding inspiring work.

Career chat with experts 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Q&A 7:00 – 7:30 pm
