‘Dinner for Four’ — The Aspire Center summer series
When you meet new people in life or in an interview, how do you answer the question, “Tell me a little bit about yourself.”? For many of us, it may seem complicated to sum up our life experiences in a brief-yet-compelling few minutes.
Last week in The Aspire Center summer series, you began the steps of understanding how to navigate networking. In an effort to strengthen your personal and professional networks while confidently articulating your skills, interests and values, The Aspire Center summer series helps you build your talking points this week.
We are excited to launch our new virtual, casual Dinner for Four networking experience. Dinner for Four is a safe space to practice your skills with three other Carthage students, alumni, faculty and staff as you share a virtual meal together. The first Dinner for Four chat features Emma McLaughlin ’21, DaQuawn Bruce ’17 & ’19, Shannon Kebisek ’20, and Tom Wood ’13.
Interested in participating in a future Dinner for Four chat? RSVP here! These conversations can turn into connections which may lead to new opportunities!
Want to start practicing how to articulate your skills, interests, and values?
Consider how you’d answer these questions:
What kinds of activities come naturally to you? What can you do well?
What do you love learning and exploring? What activities make you lose track of time?
What things are really important to you? What makes an activity worthwhile or meaningful?
