Speaker Resources

The purpose of the series is to expose students to various career opportunities within our community.  We hope that you will share a bit of your narrative with the students and include some challenges that you encountered along the way and how you overcame those challenges.  We want students to learn not only about career options, but we also want students to develop resiliency and the sharing of narratives is a powerful tool.

We share here some tips from Yale's Student Interest Group event, which you might find helpful.

We look forward to having you on our campus!
