Are You Ready?

In today’s industry, learning just the hard skills isn’t enough. With increasing complexity in career options, institutional competition, social issues including diversity + inclusion, and a global pandemic creating job market uncertainty, students require a more holistic preparation to enter the industry. One that complements what they learn in the classroom with an understanding of the pathways in, entry strategies, and the unspoken of challenges they’ll face. "Are You Ready?” is a career preparedness workshop series in which students rotate between three distinct sessions:  "Find It" which focuses on understanding the various paths one can take to enter the industry, "Join It” which focuses on how to land your first opportunity in the industry, and "Own It” which focuses on how to reach your fullest potential once you’ve landed the full time gig.
