As an organization that strongly believes in the power of professional development, WII organized two panels to help provide guidance from local professionals. These panels were the first installments in our new series: Campus-to-Career. The series aimed to answer current students questions about the job search, networking, resumes, and other career questions.
The second panel installment: "Young Professionals," was held on Tuesday, June 24th at 6pm. This panel comprised five young professionals from diverse professional backgrounds, who have recently started their careers. In their presentations and the subsequent discussions, they advised students on appropriate approaches to networking, tips for navigating the job search, the importance of hard and technical skills, and many more important topics.
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.
The second panel was held at the offices of SmithBucklin at 2025 M Street, NW.
