Design a Career without Knowing Your Target!

with Kara Bell

From the time you learned to talk, you likely heard the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" The older you get, the greater the pressure to decide. How do you sift through all of your diverse history, talents, skills and experiences to pick something that fits?

Interestingly, the brightest minds at Silicon Valley get stuck in ways that are very similar to job seekers. They are in the position of designing products that never before existed. To keep up with consumer demand and technological advances, they get comfortable with the design phase and use a technique called “Design Thinking.”

This workshop will introduce you to the concepts of design thinking to help you:

  • Take action even if you don't know your target yet.
  • Open up new possibilities not currently on your radar.
  • Bring a sense of fun into the drudgery of job hunting.
  • Think outside of the bullet point!
