Description of the Workshop:
A person leaving the workshop should have a sense if they are ready to test the labor market before graduation, learn highlights of the interviewing/hiring culture, and some tools they can use to reference later. The objectives are for people to be able to identify what are their transferable skills, assess their previous work experience to decide what to share on paper on in an interview and decide for themselves if they are ready or not test the labor market. A person will leave with some tips and materials to reference to really assess are they ready to start interviewing or strive for a job, position, or career they might never have thought of before. A new degree does represent a new part of you in your own personal and professional evolution in one's educational journey.
