Dong is the director of finance and operations at Teach For America-Chicago, and will talk about U.S. business culture from the perspective of other cultures.

What’s Your Story?
Where: Siegel Hall, Room 202
Description: This workshop, in departure from the shopworn “30-Second Elevator Pitch” paradigm, is designed to help you know what to say to employers to sell your skills, settle your nerves, and put you in the mindset of an employer. Attend this workshop and show employers that you have prepared to converse with contacts naturally and professionally.

Mark your calendars for this event:
