Open to all community members, these events are designed to help you transition into your first career or make a career change.

What does it mean to have a personal brand? What’s the best way to search for a job? How do I prepare a resume or get ready for an interview?

Rio Salado students, alumni, and community members are invited to take part in a series of four workshops starting in February: 4 Steps to a Meaningful New Career.

These engaging sessions are designed to answer these questions and more. Led by a 20-year educator with experience as a director of career services, an academic advisor/career, and a professional personal development coach, participants will take away steps and ideas to use immediately to make their next career move.

“Everyone asks the question, ‘what next?’ but often doesn’t know where to start,” said Rio Salado College’s Career Services Supervisor Carole Redden, who will lead the workshops. “The series was designed to give participants the tools and resources needed to change careers with confidence!”

These engaging sessions are FREE and open to Rio Salado students and alumni as well as community members. They are offered live online via Webex from 1:30-2:45 p.m.
