Introducing our new workshop series

The CEO of You

CEO of You is a series of free, on-campus workshops designed to leverage your liberal arts training to take your next steps out of knowledge, context and strength. 

These workshops count for credit for Passport to Leadership and the Work Study Pilot.

All workshops starts at 4:00pm and ends at 5:30pm in J.R. Howard in room 302. 

Tuesday 3/13/18: Breaking into the Gig Economy - Meredith Goddard, Founder of Five Years In REGISTER HERE

How do you prepare yourself for a job that may not yet exist? Find out about the future of work, how to brand yourself, and the importance of the side hustle.

Wednesday 3/14/18: Productivity and Decision-Making - Michelle Lantow, Retired Executive: New Season’s, McCormick & Schmick’s, Lucy Activewear, Gap - REGISTER HERE 

Want to get to the things on your list that you never seem to have time to complete? Need help making decisions you have been delaying? This workshop is great for balancing academics and activities as well as standing out at work.

Thursday 3/15/18: Networking for Venture and Work - Chrys Hutchings, Associate Director, Programming & Partnerships, Bates Center for Entrepreneurship and Leadership REGISTER HERE 

Whether you are looking for venture resources, learning more about an industry or looking for a job, networking is key. For job seekers, 80% of jobs are sourced via networking. Learn the formula in this workshop.

Wednesday 4/11/18: Personal Financial Literacy - Meredith Goddard, Founder of Five Years In - REGISTER HERE 

It is expensive to be poor. Learn how to manage your income, credit, savings and investments so that your money goes further. This is not a lecture, but an engaging workshop that is fun (as well as useful).


If it turns out you cannot attend a workshop, please notify as soon as possible so we can release the spot to a wait listed student. You may not transfer your position to another student–we will go through the wait list first but encourage your friends to sign up.
