The Path: Professionals Share the Stories of Their Careers
*The event has already taken place on this date: Tue, 08/11/2020
The goal of this series is to show tweens/teens that many people don’t just decide they are going to be (insert career title here) and that is the end of the story.
They have taken roundabout paths, done a variety of completely different things, tried more than one field—and guess what? That’s okay! It’s time to demystify the idea of a straight line career path.
