Working for the Common Good

Dear DePaul Students,

Save the Date!  Join us for our event, Working for the Common Good!

Wednesday, April 27, 2016
5pm to 7pm, Cortelyou Commons

Given the strong response of last year’s event, “Working for the Common Good” is offered again this spring!  This event is a professional development and networking event brought to you by the DePaul Career Center which will provide opportunities to participate in round table discussions and “Open House” conversations represented by seasoned social service professionals at the event.  Representatives will be joining us from different settings including non-profit organizations, associations, schools, government agencies, research centers, clinics, cultural institutions, and more to share their perspectives! We will have over 30 professionals joining us to participate in the event!

Specifically, this event will provide opportunities to:
§ Participate in roundtable discussions ranging in topics from social justice, community outreach, advocacy, research, school counseling, etc.
§ Participate in “Open House” conversations in which professionals highlight their organization work cultures, understanding the range of entry to seasoned roles and key competencies needed
§ Network with fellow DePaul alumni about best practices, trends, and marketability
§ Be active by learning about participating student organizations and how to be a part of various projects!

This is a great opportunity to meet and talk to new and seasoned professionals in all areas of social service to learn more about their unique roles and path, best practices, and ways to be marketable in your field.
