College and Career Networking Workshop

College and Career Networking Workshop

The College and Career Networking Workshop is an annual workshop which takes place in October and is hosted by the Eritrean American Community Association of GA. The workshop gathers between 25-30 young professionals across various academic and professional fields and disciplines. The purpose of the workshop is to provide high school students, college students, and recent graduates an opportunity to network with professionals in their fields of interests. Participants also learn how to select college majors, apply for financial aid and scholarships, apply for college, among other skills.

 

The day begins with a 5 person panel of professionals who share information about their educational and career experiences and advice. Following the panel, participants participate in break out sessions based on their field of interests. Parents are provided a session on how to engage with the school system, save for college, and other topics.
