Career Workshop

Thursday, November 6th, 2003 · No Comments

Greetings from the 14th floor of the Lee Hecht Harrison building in San Francisco. Today is day one of my two-day career workshop. I’m currently on a lunch break and being the obsessive blogger that I am, thought I’d take this opportunity at one of the computers in the lab to write a post about my experience so far.

I usually zone out or even fall asleep during any kind of lecture or seminar (ask Jen about our college days), but I’m actually finding this seminar interesting and quite helpful. It’s only a quarter over, but already we’ve gone through some really valuable exercises — identifying our skills, interests, and personal values. Much like any other project, finding a job or a new career requires the same discipline: Milestones, professional objective, etc. I now have a fat binder that will help me with all this fun stuff.

It’s now time to get back to class, so I must sign off. We’re spending the afternoon reviewing our resumes, so hopefully I can trim mine down from the four pages it currently is.
