On Saturday, March 17th 2012 we held our third annual Career Day. Scholars from all three classes of recipients were in attendance along with many volunteers and board members.
Scholars spent the day learning both soft and hard professional skills. The morning sessions included resume and cover letter writing and tips for informational interviewing. During the lunch hour, Scholars had the opportunity to visit various stations to learn and meet professional from a wide range of industries and fields.
The afternoon sessions included “Business Etiquette & Dress for Success,” where Scholars learned the Do’s and Don’ts of professional attire and email communication. Scholars also learned how to tell their story and portray their strengths. The day closed with Mock Interviews before the Scholars and many volunteers concluded the day with a group dinner.
We cannot give enough thanks to our committee chairs and many volunteers who made the event a success. Our Scholars learned valuable skills and it could not have been possible without your effort. We would also like to extend a special thanks to WilmerHale for welcoming us to their space.
