Saturday – How do you build a career you’ll love?

Figuring out your career is often a foggy mess – no one has a good answer to “What do you want to do after you graduate?” Today is about solving that.

You’ll discover what matters to you through guided self-reflection and ideation, design real career directions you can act on immediately, network with confidence, find hidden opportunities for success, learn to avoid burnout, and find out how to remember everything as you plot your path towards your impact.

Get the clarity you need to build your best career in this deeply insightful and inspiring three-hour workshop.

“I recently started feeling “Day one of Zero Work opened my eyes to a lot of things that had me thinking “How have I gone my whole life without thinking of that?”like I’m too behind to catch up or that I’m not cut out to do amazing things, but this program and environment have helped change my perspective.”
