Partnership in Employment Career Fair Workshops

If you are attending this Career Fair (which, if you want a job or internship, you should!):

… then you should attend the workshops that are taking place at the event!

This brief workshop (which takes place AT the Career Fair itself) will provide students the opportunity to participate in a self-reflection activity and discussion that starts exploration of the question “What should I choose for my major/career field/specific job?” Students will leave with a greater understanding of how to uncover their strengths and weaknesses, as well as resources to aid in the process.

We hope to see you all there!
