Graduate students hear all the time that they need a plan for their professional futures. At the same time, they must be prepared to take advantage of the unforeseen opportunities that are likely to present themselves along the way. This winter, four faculty practitioners will share their career stories with CEU students. This is a great opportunity to learn about the roles both planning and chance can play as individuals chart their paths.
Bring a Brown Bag lunch and join us for an informal talk about careers and professional life.
