I thought the meeting was definitely what I needed for my current stage. I've been struggling to figure out what kind of career or industry I want to pursue so having the meeting really helped to point me in the right direction and know what steps I need to take in order to figure it out.

My experience was overall really positive. It was a great experience to sit down and talk with someone about what it was that I want, especially since I'm still trying to discover that myself. Any help on how to get ahead in the process was great.

Fantastic! I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the meeting, but talking through career steps, strategies, and the thought exercise were what I needed. I am/was out of touch with the employment economy, so it was really great touching base about it and all the relating bits.

We combined efforts with many types of organizations to host workshops, speak at industry panels, and more to empower students to succeed. We are always open to new ideas and finding ways to work with other organizations.
