The LI$T Success Seminars: NSBE National Convention
We are excited about the future of The LI$T and you should be too!
The LI$T Expands our Network
Over the past month we have taken our site into a new direction, focusing on giving advice in-person! We finished the month March by presenting a professional workshop at the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) – National Convention in Pittsburgh, PA. NSBE is one of the largest student run organizations in the world and its convention hosts 10,000 high school and college students as well as alumni and corporate sponsors. We enjoyed attending workshops, corporate networking events, and meeting students who we can help in the future.
Face to Face Networking in the Facebook Generation
Our 50+ workshop attendees (including collegiate members from Region 1, 2, and 3 and corporate recruiters) learned how to perfect their networking skills by focusing on small talk, discussed good networking characteristics, and practiced their elevator pitches. Attendees said the workshop was fun and interactive and it even helped some students with their approach at corporate sponsored events and the career fair. Overall it was a great success!
A One-on-One Approach…Career Consultations
After the success of our National Convention Workshop, Cameron and I started conducting private career consultations. We already focused on providing free resume critiques to our readers but now we take the time to work with each client to help them reach their specific goals. Whether they are trying to apply to an internship, receive a scholarship, or they need advice on a big professional decision, we are there to help our clients with our own brand of professional guidance. So far we have 10 clients but we welcome more. If anyone is interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are quickly approaching our 1st year anniversary of The LI$T and we would really like to thank EVERYONE who has shown us so much support. We look forward to sharing more advice with our readers, expanding our staff, and having fun while helping students and recent college graduates!
