Designing Your Life
Thursday, August 2, 2018
Speaker: Rochelle Harris
Career Development is often thought of as a straightforward process with easy to follow steps.
1. Reflect on your values, interests and talents.
2. Research potential careers.
3. Create and implement the plan.
Designing Your Life is a book that turns this approach upside down. It asks that we move beyond reflection and planning into a more active role as a designer. Together, we will discuss strategies to design your career in ways that are practical, active, and meaningful.
- Learn how to apply the concept of prototyping to your career.
- Embrace having multiple career interests.
- Leave with a handout listing follow up exercises and additional resources about the Designing Your Life book
