Below are the scheduled topic of each session.

Goal setting is important for identifying what you want to accomplish and what you have to do to get there. In this workshop, learn how to set goals for yourself that break up the whole process into small tasks that are manageable and will help you keep up the momentum.

The workshop includes exercises that will get you started on how to set goals for your job search.
