Thursday, January 31, 2019

On Monday, February 28, the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering invited experts to host a storytelling workshop and panel discussion aimed at helping students prepare for job interviewing and practice building a strong self-identity in their careers. 

Facilitated by Keisha Jackson, Digital Communities Manager at Microsoft, students wrote, reflected, and engaged in an analysis of self-identity and goal-setting as it relates to the workplace.
