Career Development Workshops
Updated: Jul 3, 2018
Tailored Hearts career development workshops consist of a community of professionals from a variety of backgrounds that inspire our participants to grow academically, personally, and professionally. With our interactive workshops, world-class team of speakers, and abundant resources, the students gain the tools necessary to improve their credentials and set them apart from their peers. Below is our Dress for the Ultimate Victory career development workshop. During this workshop, our goal is to uplift, inspire, and introduce a variety of careers to the female students grades 9th-12th. The aim is to increase career awareness and help them prepare for a career that they’ll love and thrive in. Our panel of guest speakers assist with helping the students understand that the only limitations are the ones they create in their own minds.
