GradSWE Life Lessons Panel Session
Life After Graduate School
Thursday, February 26, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Boelter Penthouse 8500
Life Lessons is a panel discussion to provide current graduate students with a view of life after graduation. The panels are tailored to the field so students get a relevant look at career paths. But more than landing a job or writing a good resume, "Life Lessons" is about life itself.
How did the panelists land their first job? What was it that they learned from the experience? How did they build and maintain relationships with their bosses and co-workers? What factors influenced decisions to move jobs? How did they pick when choices between money and a job they loved, family and work, relocations and relationships came up? What would they do differently if they had the chance? What are the most important lessons that life has taught them? These are some of the questions we hope the panelists can answer with their experiences and help prepare graduate students for life after graduation.
The first hour we will hold a panel session and the second hour we will have dinner and small roundtable discussions with the panelists.
Feel free to send any questions you would like to include in the general panel session to Stephanie.
Free dinner will be provided!
