Workshops & Events

Get Inspired

Workshops and events open up more opportunities for you.

There’s a saying among woodsmen: “sharpen the saw.” Basically, in order to get better at your work, you have to take a break to “sharpen the saw.” Connecting with like-minded professionals, getting motivated and finding new opportunities can help re-energize your work and generate new ideas.

Get a Feel for Interviews

"I think the mock interview days are especially helpful. They're real hiring managers from well-known reputable companies in the area. It is just the least pressured situation, because while they may be looking for candidates, it's not a real interview. Mock interview, right? I did still feel nervous, which was good because you're gonna be nervous in an interview...So you go in, answer their interview questions (and get) immediate feedback. Going forward, you're a name in their system. You know if they're looking for a position and you stood out well, you might be the first person they call!"
