Careers of the Future – Chicago

Hey Chicago!

We see you. You’re there making plans for your future. Working hard to set yourself up for success in college and your eventual career. That’s why Nerdy Girl Success created this event. Everything you want to know about careers and preparing for your future is right here! Okay, maybe not EVERYTHING but pretty darn close. Just check out the agenda below.

Agenda (all times are CST)

Check In 9am – 9:30am
Career Fair 9am – 11am

Visit with leaders across all industries. This is your time to learn about everything from the career you’re interested in from a woman who is actually in that field to discovering careers you never knew about or considered. Here are some of the careers and industries that will be there:

  • Architecture
  • Chief Financial
  • Officer
  • Media
  • Chief Revenue Officer
  • Marketing
  • Health care
  • Sales
  • And many more!

Workshops 9:50am-11:15am

  • How Much Money Do You Need to Live? – What kind of lifestyle do you want to have once you’re out on your own? How do you know if you can afford it? When should you start a savings and how much? Should you be investing? We answer these questions!
  • The 3 Basics for getting ahead: Mentors, Sponsors and Networking – What’s the difference between a mentor and a sponsor? How do you find one? How do you work with them? How to do you make the most of networking?
  • The Basics of Interviewing – We’ll cover everything from what kinds of questions to expect and how to answer them to how to dress (this can change depending on the industry) to how to follow up afterwards. Be sure that you make a great and lasting impression!

Panel Discussion 11:20pm – 12:20pm CST

The last two years has had a huge impact on the type of careers that are going to be in high demand in just a few years. How do you determine what those careers are and the best way to prepare for them? Our panelists will be sharing their insights and strategies for success no matter what field you enter.
