Matters of Success Seminar Series- It Matters: Small Steps Lead to Big Impact

Tuesday, October 31, 2023 12:00 PM - Tuesday, October 31, 2023 1:00 PM at Room 113 Student Services Building

Have you been asked what do you want me to do? Some or many of us hesitate because we are unsure of what we want to do. Some of us may not have family members working in fields that interest us, we may not know options that are available. We may not know the jobs that we want to do, but most of us want to find work that inspires us and want to somehow make an impact. This workshop will help you figure out your values, what may inspire you, how you may want to make an impact, and even the type of work you may not want to pursue.
