Leadership in Careers Program

Overview

Leadership in Careers (LinC) is a program that welcomes and encourages students of any major, age, and year in school to participate. The program focuses on building leadership skills that are applicable to any field of study and chosen career path.

LinC is a six-week-long professional development program with distinct approaches to integrating leadership into personal branding, public speaking, networking, interviewing, and professionalism. The objective of the program is to utilize all of the leadership experiences and skills learned in LinC during internship fairs and future career endeavors.

Beginning in January, students will participate in a three-hour-long leadership workshop, which focuses on personal leadership style, community building, and professional communication techniques. Following the leadership summit, students will attend weekly meetings with the goal of infusing leadership into their career visioning and goal-setting. Prior to attending the Career and Internship Fair, there will be a networking event, which are opportunities to successfully execute leadership skills learned throughout the program.

The program will tentatively take place on Tuesdays starting January 26th to March 16th from 6 to 7:30!
