Announcements from the Honors College

Entering the Workforce: A Q&A workshop with Honors alumni

What: A Q&A workshop, featuring Honors alumni as panelists, focused on the transition between college and the working world.

College doesn’t always prepare you for the norms, expectations, and etiquette of professional life. Have you ever wondered…What it’s like starting a new job in an unfamiliar city? Should you respond to work emails outside of business hours? How company-sponsored benefits like health insurance or retirement plans work? Here’s your chance to ask recent alumni those very questions, and more! Whether you’re planning to enter the workforce in 3 months or 3 years, it’s never too early to start preparing now for life as a working professional.

When: Monday, March 8, 6:30 p.m.

Learn more about the event, including the alumni panelists, or register to receive the Zoom link.
