A live webinar will kick off Career Re-LAUNCH to introduce the program’s faculty director, scheduled faculty speakers and fellow participants.

This will lay the foundation for personal development planning activities leading up to the on-campus programming.

Birkman Method Assessment with Career Exploration

The Birkman Career Exploration is designed to give program participants a deeper understanding of themselves and the career options that fit best. The Birkman report can help confirm career choices, show alternative career choices and build personal awareness of strengths, motivators and working environments that will help with career success.
