Join us for a rotating series of working sessions covering the fundamentals of your career preparation. These sessions are designed to address the preliminary questions most Oberlin students ask in their first consultations with advisors. Attending these sessions helps you jump-start progress on important topics and tasks, so you can focus your one-to-one time with advisors on the more personalized work related to your strategies and documents.
Weekly Working Sessions will take place in the Career Center Conference Room every Tuesday at 12:30 pm and every Wednesday at 4 pm. Check our calendar for the specific topics covered each week.
Each session will consist of a half-hour presentation followed by an (optional) half hour of guided hands-on work. Bring your laptop and a friend - we'll supply the snacks!
