Bard Works is a week-long, January workshop series that connects students to the Bard network while honing job search and professional skills. Hands on workshops, panels, small group discussions, and individual mentoring sessions encourage student’s curiosity about careers.
Ranging in scope, the workshop series includes skill-based workshops on resume writing, the job search, making a pitch, public speaking in the workforce and writing for business. To introduce participants to a wide range of career paths, we bring in professionals from the arts, business, entrepreneurship, non-profits, government, publishing and communications. Each student is paired with a mentor working in the student’s field of interest, or a related field, and receives advice on finding jobs and making connections in their field of interest.
I. Finding Your First Job
