Academic Success & Career Builder:

Educating Yourself for Leadership


Dear Future Scholars:


Leadership begins with you.  How will you educate yourself to be a leader--or a very informed, inspiring follower?

People often think of career choices as a one-time thing, but these days individuals may switch jobs and careers several times in their working lives.  So career building becomes not a one-time decision but rather an ongoing process during a lifetime.  How do you build your learning experiences in and out of the classroom to uncover a career that will allow you to enjoy working and to succeed?  Today's workshop offers information to help you in that lifelong process.
