Career Development Workshops

These workshops educate Scholars about potential careers and provide them with critical professional development.

Often run in collaboration with Career Partners, these workshops may feature panels with professionals from various industries or may focus on skill-building such as resume writing and interviewing. Workshops are offered during the Pre-Collegiate Training program, summer and winter breaks, and the campus visit each fall.
