"Strategies and Skills for Student Employment Impact and Success"

Carolyn will bring her experience and knowledge in the field of student employment to the group.

Her training style is pragmatic and good humored, and focuses on asking key questions developed from sound experience and knowledge to build understanding and ability. Participants will reflect and analyze where student employment sits in their respective institution, discover techniques and approaches for building connections, levers, and tactics so they can be heard and recognized as a confident campus expert in the midst of the noise of competing priorities.

So be prepared for a highly interactive session to help you gain the skills and understanding to identify and develop an action plan for outstanding student employment success at your institution.
