Careers on Purpose: Taking Control of your Success

When: 5-7pm on Sunday, February 9th, 2014
Where: Lincoln Park Student Center 324

You have the counseling skills. You are smart, capable, and ready to go. Now what? How do you get the job after you graduate? How do you set yourself up for success while in school?

Learn how to break past your internal barriers, build the foundation for success while you are in school, and gain concrete networking skills in an interactive environment. Begin a journey through the skills and attitudes that your program might not have taught you and walk away empowered to create your own path.

Rena McDaniel, a DePaul Alumni (class of 2013), is currently serving as the Director of Outreach and Operations, as well as a staff therapist, at IntraSpectrum Counseling. Less than a year after graduating, she has gotten a director position at a private practice, presented to a room of 60+ professionals at a local hospital, been asked to do a training for a consortium of interns of three major LGBTQ organizations, developed and serves at head of the coaching department for Fortune Training & Coaching, and has a standing coffee date with Viktor Frankl’s grandson!

COE Winter Forum 2014


Tuesday, February 11; 5:30 to 7:30 PM
DePaul Student Center, Room 314

Ralph Martire, the Director of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, a well-known and respected state and national policy expert will present a critical analysis of the state of public school funding in Chicago and Illinois.  Martire will discuss issues of adequacy and equity in funding and offer solutions to the question of how we can pay for the education all children deserve.

In an era of  budget cuts, teacher layoffs, the erosion of programs and services for children, and increasing inequity in resources, the forum will offer students a deeper understanding of the challenges and possibilities of providing a well-resourced quality education for all children.

We must as a nation, and in our states, launch a renewed effort to eliminate the stubborn and persistent resource disparities and inadequacies that drag down American public schools. Now is the time to take the bold and courageous action to make certain that all of our students have access to the meaningful educational opportunities that they and the nation must secure. (Martire, "The Fair Funding Challenge")
