Demystifying Your Future: Career Conversations Workshops

    Wednesday, May 8 from 1-4 pm

    We in Academic and Career Advising are excited to offer the first of a series of events we’re calling Demystifying Your Future: Career Conversations with Working Professionals.  At the event, advisors will demonstrate the skill of informational interviewing by interviewing our guests from the Olympia area.  Students are invited to join as audience members, and there will be plenty of time for student questions, too! 

    This time there will be four guests joining us and conversations will happen between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm (see details below). 

    Come for some of it or come for all of it, and let us know who you’d like to see at our next event!
