Leading into your Career: are you Career ready?

Do you know how to use your strengths, interests, and talents? Employers are looking for students “career ready” with career competencies developed throughout college. Building these skills starts with self-awareness and continues through setting goals and identifying opportunities to achieve them.

Staying "woke" has become popularized in society. But, having to remain informed of all the social issues plaguing the world can sometimes become exhausting and cause fatigue in leadership. The question we'll explore is how to take care of yourself and still engage in social justice leadership.
