Presentation Overview

Do you have a career plan?

Did you know…?

  • 80% of students change majors three times on average
  • 50% of recent grads regret their choice of major and don’t know what to do with it
  • 75% of grads don’t know what positions fit them

Studies show a top predictor of career success is self-awareness. The reason students frequently change majors, regret their choice of major, or don’t know what careers fit them, is because it’s difficult to read the label when you’re inside the jar!

In my research and work, I’ve found there are four key factors that influence our career fulfillment. In this session you’ll receive an overview of the pillars of career satisfaction and be given free access to assessments and exercises to deepen your self-awareness.

This information can be practically applied to:

  • Targeting your resume to jobs that fit your strengths and skills
  • Creating interview stories based on your strengths
  • Updating your LinkedIn profile summary to align to what you do best
  • And much more!
