Design Your Dream Career and Find Work that Matters

Christie Julien – February 11th, 2018

Finding Work that Matters: A Career Design Workshop for UVA Undergraduates

The thought of finding a job feels totally overwhelming. You want to do work that matters, but you’re stuck on where to start and feeling pressure to make decisions.

Figuring out what we want after college requires action, but we usually don’t have the time or the tools to find a clear answer.

Become confident in how you talk about what comes next in a way that gets people to help you succeed.
