The career planning workshop conducted last Friday at the AFLVWest Conference in San Diego was simply incredible.
With seating set for 55 students, nearly 100 jammed in the room to participate in the workshop. It was so exciting that students literally sat on the floor around the podium and presentation screen! The photo on the right was taken 10 minutes before the session started.
The interactive session provided information and best practices in the areas of:
- Personal characteristics
- Acquired skills
- Resume tips
- Personal branding
- Greetings and first impressions
- Social media presence and messaging
- Networking benefits
- Networking success tips
- Professional relationship building
Many questions were asked, allowing for a very interactive discussion.
Thanks to the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values for the opportunity to share tips and information relating to careers. The session's topic, "Ways to Leverage Greek Experience to Land a Great Job" was ideal for these student leaders. And, special thanks to participants of the next session, who patiently waited for students to ask questions after our session.
Reminder to participants in Friday's workshop...email your resume for a review and possible introduction to potential employers.
We're already looking forward to next year's AFLV Conference!
