Knowing Yourself

Who am I?  Where am I going?  How do I get there? 

The Hegi Family Career Development Center provides many opportunities for students to learn about and explore professional career opportunities through individualized career counseling appointments, drop-in hours, customized major/career panels, networking events, and externship and internship opportunities. To get started, students are encouraged to drop-in for a 20 minute appointment with a career counselor during Career Express Summer Drop-Ins held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3.

Watch a TED Talk on What Makes Us Feel Good About Our Work?

WORK. For some, its utter lack of perceived significance hurls them into existential crisis, while for others being on the job allows the highest level of fulfillment and even provides a life purpose. We spend a full third of our lives either preparing for work via school or actually being in the workforce. Why not look for ways to maximize the meaning, positive sentiment, and performance contribution associated with it? This show explores the journey and experiences of how various people navigate their careers toward meaningful work-life integration. Anyone looking for guidance, inspiration, and examples on how to get unstuck at work or move to a higher level of meaning or contribution will enjoy tuning in. We’ll hear from everyday people telling their work-life stories and from other authors who have contributed their understanding to the topic of work, careers, and work-life integration. Working on Purpose airs live Wednesdays at 3 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment.
