Gonzaga University Seattle Career Trek

Hi Colleagues,

Recently I enjoyed attending Gonzaga University's Career Trek for Seattle, Wash. at the Renaissance Hotel as put on by the Career Center and Gonzaga Alumni Mentor Program (a.k.a. "GAMP").  Over two days, I attended a non-profit panel at the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum (known by locals as the EMP), a social with students, alumni, professors, alumni mentors, and employers, a women's symposium, and a career fair.  Here's a few pixels aside from being busy networking and participating:

I appreciate Gonzaga's polished efforts to connect students, recent graduates, and alumni with each other and with potential employers.  I benefited from the women who shared their insights and experience on special challenges that women face in the workplace, among other helpful advice.  I even won a book!

Thank you to my new friends and colleagues who connected with me at this event and who have helped me to build my resume.  I highly recommend attending next year's Treks in Portland or Seattle.  Want to stay in the loop for future events by the Career Center?  Check out their social media channels.

Kindly,
Dena
