Zooming Out: Creating the Roadmap for Career Everywhere at Your Institution

During this 1-hour pre-conference virtual session, you will be guided through a series of reflections and activities designed to help you develop deeper understanding of the priorities at your institution. To make Career Everywhere happen on your campus requires a tailored approach and contextually relevant strategies. Put simply: Career Everywhere at your institution cannot and should not feel like it could be Career Anywhere at any institution. Join Karyn and Kevin for this virtual session to start putting together your custom roadmap to Career Everywhere. You’ll come away with a practical understanding of what matters most, who matters most, and the key questions you need to be asking.
