Graduate students are invited to the following professional development event:
The enjoyment of employment: Finding the right workplace culture
on Monday, August 24 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in 3650 Humanities, with reception to follow at 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Humanities Courtyard.
Whether you are considering an academic or non-academic career after graduate school or your postdoc, you’ll want to find a place where you are happy. Are you aware of the different kinds of workplace cultures you’ll encounter? People look for different things in a job: one person might want to change the world, while another just wants a paycheck. Matching your work personality to the culture of the organization is one of the prime factors in workplace happiness. In this workshop you’ll assess your workplace personality which we will then match against different work environments to see what kinds of organizations are compatible with your work style. We’ll end with a checklist and timeline for starting your job search so that you’ll be fully prepared when the time comes.
Before the workshop, go to http://www.dougsguides.com/personality, take the personality assessment and bring the results with you.
