  • How many of you attended one of our sessions during Winter Welcome or Welcome weekend? This should look familiar to you. I think it’s worth revisiting this framework for the career management process because it truly is the foundation for the content and sequencing of the services we offer you to help prepare you in the job search process. You will see this framework a lot, and we hope you’ll see how it is applicable to not only your Wharton job search process, but ANY job search process Our mission is to help you to be successful in the job search process not only here at Wharton, but in any job search beyond that, because your Wharton job search will undoubtedly not be your last!
  • We know you are diverse in your experiences to date and needs What has your experience been thus far – why are you here? What are you hoping to get out of today’s session?
