Dependable Strengths Workshop: Networking and Job Search

Saturdays, October 3, 9am-5pm and October 10, 9am-3pm
2 day workshop + one follow-up appointment

Need answers to the big questions about where you are headed next?
Not sure what kind of job you are interested in or how to find it?
Are you graduating this year and lack the know-how or confidence to network?

This two day workshop helps you to do all of these! Unlike other career assessments and workshops, you'll be able to assess your strengths and identify what you enjoy, things that you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride. It motivates you to succeed. Ultimately by learning more about yourself through this process, you open up new opportunities.
The focus in this workshop is a non-traditional job search process. Through guided group discussions, participants will:

* Identify what you are good at and what you love to do
* Learn to articulate your worth to an employer
* Learn to make contacts whenever you may want them
* Succeed in interviews
* Work with a support team to increase self-confidence

The workshop is designed for all levels from freshmen to graduate students and alumni.

Registration for the two-day workshop for current UMBC students is $50. For more details and to register online, visit:
