As a first generation or low income college student you have many skills and life experiences that will help you to succeed in any workplace. Ever wonder how to tell your story to an employer in a way that highlights your strengths? The Center for Career Education and First-in-Family Programs invite you to join us for an alumni panel and group workshop focused on articulating your story. In this program, you will: 1.Hear from alumni about the ways in which their identity played a role in successfully navigating Columbia and the job search. 2. Learn how your experiences inside and outside the classroom can give you skills that all employers seek. 3. Create your own personal introduction to be used in networking conversations and interviews.
Whether this is your very first career center event and you are just starting to think about career, or your tenth, all are welcome. Come begin to connect with the career center and build community at Columbia. Dress: Casual Light refreshments will be served
