EVENT TITLE: Your Successful Launch from a US College: Tips for Life and Career Coaching
WHEN: Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm with 30 minutes of networking to follow
WHERE: RSVP here and we will send you a confirmation email for the location
Join Bay Echo Association and the Berkeley Chinese Business Association in a dialogue about how young adults can prepare for a successful launch from college to life and a career. The presenters are accomplished alumni with advanced degrees from top universities, and with diversified professional background and personal interests.
The ideas shared from the panelists will reference recent trends in the news about the 13% of 18-28 year olds in the US who have “failed to launch” as well as newly published work that believes that students attending elite universities sometimes fall prey to experiences stunt their growth as independent thinkers and doers.
Furthermore, if you are a recent immigrant to US – either you had attended the college or graduate school in the US or not – you will find this event meaningful and inspiring on how to nurture your child as the second generation immigrant to survive and thrive better in the US. Among the panelists, some were born and raised outside US and some were also second generation immigrants. Chinese interpretation will be available onsite.
