As many of you will be looking to enter the professional workforce in the near future, WII has organized two panels of local professionals to point you in the right direction. These panels are the first installments in our new series: Campus-to-Career. The series aims to answer your questions about the job search, networking, resumes, and other career questions that you may have.
The first installment was the “Bosses” panel on Tuesday, June 17th at 6pm. Several advanced career professionals shared the traits they look for in young professionals and new hires. These were the type of people that could be offering you that first position after you finish college.
The second panel, "Young Professionals," will be Tuesday, June 24th at 6pm. This panel will be comprised of young professionals who started careers much more recently and know what it is like to be an intern looking for their first full-time job opportunity. They recently navigated the job search and are here to give you tips on how to best present yourself, find opportunities, and maximize your network. Our young professionals represent diverse professional fields and can offer a wide range of advice.
This panel will be held at the offices of SmithBucklin at 2025 M Street, NW. The meeting space is on the 7th floor. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
