Webinar: Strategic Planning for Your Career

Wednesday, Sep. 2nd, 12-1pm

This is an online event.

In our work, we often create a strategic plan for the year, if not for the next 5-10 years. It helps to solidify our mission, create realistic goals, and measure progress along the way. When it comes to your career, do you have a strategic plan? If not, perhaps it's time to create one. From establishing your career mission, to setting goals for yourself, we will explore how to create a strategic plan for your career.

Finding a Meaningful Career Workshop

When: Tuesday, September 22nd 4:00-6:00pm


Where: Atlanta Alumni Center Suite 870, 3475 Lenox Rd. NE; Atlanta, GA 30326

Cost: $65 The cost will cover two assessments and light snacks.

About: This workshop will allow UGA alumni to use both the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to consider how their interests, personality, and values play into their career satisfaction. Bethany Mills, Director of Alumni Career Services, will interpret both assessments for the group and provide activities to navigate career exploration. The session will be both informative and interactive and will allow participants to share insights and network with one another. In addition, participants will leave with an action plan for their career and some basic job search strategies to begin their new path. Registration will be limited to 12 spaces. I look forward to seeing you there!
