Confused about how to move forward with your community development career? In this workshop for entry-level community development professionals, volunteers and students, we will help participants reflect on positions they've had and how to work towards their career goals.

We will identify the kinds of jobs available and what skills people might need to build to meet their career goals. A panel of community development practitioners will share stories of their career paths and what they look for in new hires.
