At A Glance:

This event will cover the essential career topics for new grads. You know, those things you didn’t learn in school, like how to write a resume and negotiate your salary.

Why attend?

“How’s your job search going?” may be every recent grad’s least favorite question. If you graduated in May of 2015 and are still looking for a job, that’s totally normal. But we know starting a job hunt can be overwhelming, and we’ve got you covered:

  • Hear application advice from an HBO recruiter
  • Learn to negotiate your salary like a boss
  • Make sense of and manage your finances
  • Get comfortable networking and sharing your story at interviews
  • Create a stellar online presence
  • Stay positive during the job search

How It Works

You’ll get actionable tips from experts on how to focus your job search, enjoy the process, and land a great gig. You’ll even have the chance to chat with our speakers in small groups to get personal feedback on your resume and ask your questions.

You’ll leave our bootcamp with the confidence and knowledge you need to strategize your job search, write strong applications, nail the interview, and get what you deserve. You’ll also leave with a job hunt workbook and a professional headshot to share on your social media profiles. Consider this your one-stop shop to prep for the real world.

Who You’ll Meet:

  • Workshop presentations and breakout sessions with speakers
  • A professional headshot for your social media profiles
  • A job hunt workbook with tips from our speakers
