Crafting Your Story for Career Transition

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A critical part of transitioning careers is letting others know that you are capable of doing it successfully. Effectively communicating your career story is an often forgotten step in career exploration and the job search. This workshop will provide tips and tricks on crafting a career story, effective communication, and developing lasting professional relationships.
