Career & College Workshop Registration: August 9th


Thank you for registering for Embolden's Summer 2021 Professional Development Workshop! During this one-day virtual fair, students will gain valuable mentorship and guidance from professionals in their community on topics related to college admissions, interviews and resumes, and diverse career paths. Students will have the opportunity to engage with and to ask for advice directly from professionals whose experience includes college admissions to Fortune 500 companies to governmental agencies. 


The event will take place on August 9, 2021 from 10AM ET to 5PM ET. Each session will last for 1 hour, and students can sign up for as many sessions as they want. True to Embolden's promise, the event is entirely cost free.
