Calling all Terps thinking about a career transition! Join us for a moderated conversation with alumnus Deborah Flores, BSOS ’09, as she shares her experience in exploring over 30 careers in just 3 short months! Through a project she calls, "The Job Experiment," in January 2018, Deborah set a goal to explore 100 careers in 1 year, driven by the desire to find a career she was passionate about. Tap into her journey of self-discovery that ultimately led her to the job of her dreams, and uncover what she did to steer her path in a new direction. Get ideas about how to make your next move while networking with other Terps looking to make a career change.
