Jumpstart Your Future Career Event

In today's fast-paced world, it is never too early for students to begin to think about the academic and personal steps that will lead to a successful professional career. While students are aware that earning "good grades," "working hard" and doing "good work" are important goals and values, they may find that translating these ideals into concrete steps can be a daunting challenge.

On Friday, Oct. 11, from 1:15 p.m. to 5 p.m., "Jumpstart Your Future: Career Conversations with Hope Alumni" will offer students an opportunity to meet with recent alumni who are pursuing exciting and interesting careers in the fields of business, law, media/communication, and government/public service. The alumni will discuss what paths they have pursued since graduation, and what, if any, academic and personal choices the alumni would have made if they could do their careers at Hope College over again. Jumpstart Your Future is not, however, a spectator event. The afternoon has been designed to include large-group discussions, small-group focus sessions and time for one-on- one contact in order to give all students an opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the invited alumni.

"Jumpstart Your Future" is a groundbreaking event that will permit students to hear first-hand what they can begin to do now to shape their future. The alumni who are returning to campus for this event are a vibrant group of individuals who were active in numerous campus organizations as students, and are looking forward to sharing their experiences with current Hope students.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to Jumpstart YOUR Future on October 11!
