COGS Career Development Discussion

COGS will be hosting a conversation on career development for graduate and professional students on Friday, April 29th in 101 Walter Library. Lunch will be from 12:30 – 1:00pm with discussion to follow from 1:00 – 3:00pm.

A message from COGS:
We would like to invite you to participate in a student-driven conversation on Friday, April 29 about career development for graduate and professional students. What is currently happening at the U? What types of support and resources do we need as students? How can we help shape the future direction of career exploration at the U for graduate and professional students? We want to hear your opinions and ideas! We look forward to a productive day and we’re excited to come together with other students to help define what we need related to career development.

We will serve a free pizza lunch and beverages from 12:30-1 pm in 101 Walter Library to kick-off the afternoon, with discussions following from 1-3 pm. To encourage participation and input from all attendees, we will use a meeting format known as Open Space Technology; view this video to get a sense of what that will look and feel like. We will record all the ideas that are generated and share them with all of you, with other students, and with others who can help us to move forward with an action agenda for graduate student career exploration.

The success of this initiative depends on the participation of students from all parts of the U.  We want to capture the experiences and input of students at different stages of their careers, and from different fields.  Please consider joining us, and RSVP here.

We look forward to working together on April 29. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by emailing apd@umn.edu.

Best regards,

Your hosts for the afternoon
Kyle Biesecker, Nicholas Goldsmith, and Brittni Peterson
