The Career Workshop will help attendees prepare for a job search. Attendees will share experiences and challenges that they have encountered, and will be provided with insights and guidance to help them navigate the often-challenging job-seeker landscape.
The workshop is divided into information-sharing sessions and activity-based sessions that help attendees get a combination of classroom-style learning mixed with hands-on interaction. In addition to discussions of cover letters, resumes, and portfolios, we will brainstorm approaches to common interview questions, including the behavioral-based questions that are being used by many companies today. We will also learn how to research and negotiate salaries for full-time and contract employees.
