Finding a Fit: How to Evaluate a Company's Culture and the Opportunity

  • Jan 29, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ever looked at a job description and thought, "Wow I am totally NOT qualified..." Or left an interview thinking, "Hmm I don't even know what it's like to work there." Or wonder, "What happens after I accept this offer?"  

If you've ever been too afraid to apply for a position, thinking that it might be a stretch, but desperately wanted to be more than just gainfully employed, and instead feel fulfilled, challenged, and appreciated, then the first forum on 2014 is for YOU!

In this upcoming forum titled Finding a Fit, you'll learn:

• Why it's important that you apply to positions even though you might feel under-qualified 

• How to determine if a company has a culture that meets your needs

• How to confidently and compassionately set standards for you boss and colleagues before you accept an offer

AGENDA

6-7pm Networking and a light dinner 
7-8pm Presentation
8-9pm Break out session to help you practice the strategies with peers

DIRECTIONS

It should be fairly straightforward to get to ModCloth (address is listed above). There will also be volunteers present upon arrival to help you get in.

    Once again, really good meetup with great information! I met some really interesting women and had thought-provoking conversations... and the food was good too. It was worth the drive.
