Do you want to choose (or find) a career that follows your passion? Setting a North Star helps make strategic career choices that add up. What courses to take? Is serving my community important now? If so, how much and what type of service should I be engaging with? What work experience? How do I put the building blocks in place so that my passions and my career preparation align? In this session, learn mindsets and skillsets that can help create that great job path and weave together the rich career you seek.
