We know you want to be successful in college and in your future career. But what does that look like? Not sure where to start? That’s where Nerdy Girl Success® comes in. Our Career and Leadership Summit helps answer those questions and more.
9:00am - 11:00am | Career Fair
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:
- And so much more!
9:50am - 11:15am | Workshops
- Understanding Your Paycheck – Looking at your paycheck and fully understanding where each cent is going, can be sometimes grueling and tedious. This breakout session shows you exactly what each element on your paycheck means and how it all works together.
- Translating school skills to your Resume – If you had any passion projects, volunteer hours, or even extracurricular responsibilities outside of your classes/GPA, this breakout session will show you ways to effectively translate your diligence into glowing opportunities/abilities on your resume!
- 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!
11:20am - 12:20pm | Panel Discussion
Our panelists will be sharing their journeys from how they started just like you to where they are now. Learn their insights and strategies for success no matter what field you enter.

“I really appreciated this experience because it helped me feel more comfortable with not knowing what I want to do. It also gave me lots of exposure to interesting career options that I didn’t even know existed. “
~ Alexa (student attendee)
“From this experience, I was able to learn more about how to network and be comfortable doing it. I was also able to understand the ins and outs of different careers, many of which I had no prior knowledge about.”
