Fall 2019 Workshop Schedule:

Resilience: Managing Setbacks and Redefining Success

Fall 2019 — Thursday, November 21, Yawkey Center for Student Services, 100 Bay State Road, 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM

Receiving a grade that doesn’t meet your expectations or feedback that isn’t positive can affect your self-confidence and your productivity, but it doesn’t have to. In this workshop, we’ll discuss what the grades and constructive criticism that you receive in graduate school really mean and how you can cultivate a growth mindset in the face of them. You’ll come away with strategies to reframe the dialogue that you have with your professors through your scholarship and best practices for maintaining a healthy perspective when you’re faced with academic challenge. Please RSVP here!

Owning Your Student Identity While Crafting Your Professional Identity

Fall 2019 — Wednesday, December 11, Yawkey Center for Student Services, 100 Bay State Road, 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

How can you take what you’ve learned in your master’s program and leverage it to make you stand out while finding a job and, later, maintaining a career? In this workshop, we’ll discuss ways that you can identify what has made you special as a student, your student identity, and how this can translate into your professional identity. You’ll come away with a better understanding of your unique journey as a student and how that journey can directly inform how you approach interviews and define yourself in the workplace. Please RSVP here!
