“It was my Wake Forest experience that led me to my current industry. I thought I was headed to law school until my mentor opened my eyes to a career path I had never considered. Take an honest inventory of your college experience. What did you enjoy most? The least? Figure out how to incorporate what you enjoyed most into what you choose to do for a living. That is what ultimately led me to where I am today. ”

Charles Gibson III (’09), Chief Diversity Officer at Lees-McRae College in Blowing Rock, NC

Our Alumni Coffee Chats are just one simple way that we can help you build your network! 🎩↔️🎩

If you're new around here, our coffee chats work like this:

☑️ You register.

👯‍♀️ We pair you up with another Deac and introduce you via email.

📲 The two of you find a mutually agreed upon time for a conversation (in-person, Zoom, phone, whatever works best).

📍You have a new contact in your network!

If you've been meaning to try out an Alumni Coffee Chat, consider this your sign from the universe to register! 🌎Link is in our bio.

How are you thinking about the role of work in your life? 💻📱📉🗂

What does flexibility mean to you, and what are you willing to do to make it happen? ⏰⚖️

These are just a few of the questions we'll be discussing at our Rethinking Work conversation on Wednesday, June 29 from 12:00-1:30pm EST (Zoom).

Using two of @adamgrant’s recent WorkLife podcasts ("The Not-So-Great Resignation" and "Rethinking Flexibility at Work"), we’ll explore these questions and the questions we should all be asking ourselves and of others, in order to make work, work.

The majority of people are not naturally great at job interviewing. 😬 It takes a lot of practice, prep, research, and a game plan to interview like a pro! 📝📌📚💻🤝

That's why we're bringing in @WFUalumni and our friend @samanthalarsen ('16), a User Experience Researcher at Amazon, to share the tips + strategies she's mastered after interviewing at a wide variety of companies since graduating from @wfuniversity. 🎩

If the "STARI 🌟method" and "story mapping🗺" sound foreign to you, then join us this Wednesday, May 11, from 12-12:30pm EST for our last webinar of the spring! Sam will be talking us through how to prep for and nail your next job interview using these techniques.

Register at the 🔗 in our bio. All of our webinars are 💥FREE💥 and open to anyone!
