Advised to write about “a place she would want to work” for a class project in 2009, Lauren Messing chose the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya—where, two years later, she now works.
Career Focus Day Helps Students Maximize Their Potential
October 12, 2012
Monterey Institute students flocked to a wide range of workshops and discussions offered across campus all day on Career Focus Day. They took advantage of opportunities to explore their strengths, learn about different career paths, improve presentation skills, get tips on alumni networking and starting they own business, learn about incorporating social media into job searches, and stretchwork in sessions throughout the day.
At the end of the day, the students had a chance to practice their networking skills at a reception sponsored by the organizers of the event and stars of the day, the Center for Advising and Career Services. Both first- and second-year students participated in the event designed to help them to be successful in their chosen fields after graduation.
