Discover Your Career Path
Endeavor is a free three-day virtual career exploration program during winter break that will empower you to take control of your career journey. Through reflective exercises and conversations with alumni, you will explore the fit of a few career options and leave knowing at least one career field you are interested in further exploring.
Endeavor is designed to help you better understand how the skills you are gaining through your coursework and extracurricular experiences translate to potential careers. You will be led through the three-day program by past participants, known as Endeavor Fellows, along with Career Center staff and returning alumni.
By the end of Endeavor, you will be empowered to take control of your career journey. In addition, you will be able to:
- Identify at least one career field that aligns with your interests that you would like to further explore.
- Identify at least one skill you hope to incorporate into your career paths that aligns with the skills employers are seeking in recent college graduates.
- More confidently demonstrate effective networking skills to communicate with alumni and professionals about your industries of interest.
- Articulate 1-3 next steps in your career discernment and planning.
To ensure the safety of our community, Endeavor will take place virtually in 2021. We are planning a full schedule to provide you with the same high quality experience.
