Surviving & Thriving: Successful Job Searches & Career Transition - Organizers and Presenters: Meredith Kahn, University of Colorado-Boulder and Greta Bahnemann, Minnesota Digital Library


Limit: 30 participants; Fee: $50.00; MCAD Classroom 440 - The recent economic downturn has resulted in budget cutbacks, staff downsizing, and mandatory retirements. In this new and difficult reality, entrance or re-entrance into the profession can appear daunting. Our workshop will present practical tips for conducting a successful job search, focusing on the needs of students, new professionals and mid-career professionals. Topics for discussion include: starting a job search, networking, coping with unemployment, job interviews, and negotiating job offers. Workshop activities include mock interviews, written exercises based on real job descriptions and cover letters, and a discussion forum in which participants will be able to network and learn from one another.

Round-trip transportation between Hilton Minneapolis and MCAD will be provided. Please see our Conference Blog for further information.
