Designing Your Life Series

Friday, October 28, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT

What is a well-designed life? How do you find a career where you can thrive? Inspired by Stanford’s Designing Your Life curriculum, this interactive, six-week, in-person seminar will teach graduate students and postdoctoral fellows principles for designing a fulfilling career. Participants must commit to attending all six sessions of the seminar and a $10 registration fee is required for participation in this seminar. The seminar includes brief homework assignments, discussions, role-plays, the Gallup Strengths assessment, and out-of-class application activities. Those who complete all six sessions will receive a digital badge that can be shared on LinkedIn. Participation will be capped at 35. This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. All sessions will take place at the Rackham Building.
