About Kickstart

Who should attend? 

Kickstart is for new career services professionals who have been in their role for 0-2 years. The curriculum has been developed with a diverse audience in mind, both from education, background, and years of experience. Kickstart is for professionals new to career services who may or may not have previous experience in higher education or at other offices on campus. They might be recent masters or Phd graduates or recent hires from industry. The program has also been thoughtfully designed to cater toward career professionals with various career services roles such as career education, employer relations, internships and experiential learning, or marketing/data/operations. We hope you will join the Kickstart community.
