Career Counselors/ Student Mentoring

How does it work?

This is an informal way to meet professionals and ask them various questions about the planning profession.

 

The room will be set up with round tables (one professional for each table). Pick a professional to sit with (up to four students can sit with a professional at one time).

 

Once seated, you have up to an hour to ask the professional any question you like. Feel free to move to a new table during the counseling session to meet another professional.

Questions the professionals will be prepared to answer:
1) What are employers looking for?
2) What is the day in the life of a planner?
3) What is the best way to network?
