Topics and Workshops
Career Development Action Project for second year students As they near the end of their second year, all students enroll in Career Development workshops, where they participate in a series of required sessions designed to explore their interests and skills in greater depth. Students learn about the necessity of planning a career both for the short and the long terms, and about how to adapt to the career and employment changes that life often brings. Most importantly, students get to interview real, working professionals in a field that interests them, learning what it’s really like and assessing whether they would do well in that profession.
Throughout this Action Project, students receive coaching and mentoring as they explore their options, become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and look to the future with a realistic vision. At the end of this Action Project, most students will declare their concentration and enter their third year with a fresh sense of purpose.
