W&M Professionals Week Graphic

Whether you are actively looking for a new job, considering making a change, or just trying to make your current position better, join us in an exploration of how to find or create the right job for you. If you’re like most people, you will change jobs and careers around a dozen times throughout your life. With each change, you will likely have new colleagues, new responsibilities, a new culture to adapt to, new skills required, and a new mission to fulfill. Finding the right fit is more likely when you have the tools, mindset and questions to consider to make a good decision, beyond the title and salary. 

To begin, Pam Krulitz ‘86 will explore how to clarify your passion, values and skills and make sure they’re aligned with the position you’re considering. You’ll leave with the clarity and confidence to make your next move.

Following Pam's presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to receive advice regarding their current career stage (young professional, military veteran, or re-entering/pivoting industries) through facilitated breakout rooms with peers.
