Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:00am
Venue: 
AllenX 101 Auditorium
Speaker: 
Pamela Paspa (Stanford BEAM)
Abstract / Description: 

Career paths are never linear. There are a lot of bumps, meanderings and uncertainty that come with choosing a job and/or career. The most important place to start is with you. Reflecting on what matters to you, how you want to live your values, experience your strengths (those things you're already good at), and apply your skills, is key to choosing where you want to go. In this program Pamela Paspa, M.A., Board Certified Career Coach, will walk you through an interactive exercise for thinking about what you know about yourself and how to apply that to meaningful work.


The REU Seminar Series is an educational and developmental opportunity for REU participants. Attendance at the seminars is required for all REU interns. Speakers will discuss their research or work, provide educational and career advice, and share their knowledge with you. There will be a question and answer period at the end of each talk. Light refreshments are provided at each seminar. If you believe you may need accommodations during the seminar series, please contact us at reu@ee.stanford.edu or reu2018@ee.stanford.edu so that we may find a way to accommodate your needs.
