Job searching while completing your master’s can feel like a huge, daunting task.
Maybe you’re staring at your screen right now and feeling overwhelmed. You have 14 tabs open including readings, data, reports, and class schedules. You’re eating dinner in front of the computer again, trying to get everything done for tomorrow’s classes.
Job searching may seem seem like a far away goal, but it’s also the most pressing. It’s what you’re most worried about and why you’re doing this master’s degree to begin with.
During this online career summit you will learn:
1. How to create a job search plan while managing graduate school;
2. How to find the right role and organization for you;
3. How to pitch yourself to employers;
4. And how to job search during a recession.
This Career Summit will help you build a foundation for your job search, so that you can start planning for your job search early and land a job when you’ve finished your master’s. Beginning your career planning early means that you set the foundation for success in your job search, without the overwhelm and stress that will inevitably come if you wait until graduation.
You have access to the replay videos from October 1st through October 31st.
