Friday, November 13, 2015

Finding your Fit
Where: Perlstein Hall, Room 109
Description: What is most important to you in your career search? Flexibility? Salary? A fun work culture? Achieving a high level of responsibility? These questions help determine the job and company that is right for you, and clarifying your career values gives you a set of criteria to evaluate your options at each stage of the job search process. This workshop will help you determine your career values, articulate these values to employers, and increase your chances at securing a meaningful and rewarding job. If you cannot articulate your values, how will you know what kind of job you are looking for?
