Focus Your Career Workshop Series

Many alumni who consider changing their career are unclear about the position, company, and industry in which they will be most successful. This course uses directed exercises to identify the parameters of your “ideal job.” Completing the ideal job parameters exercises qualifies you to participate in a Career Brainstorming Session with key faculty and career staff who will help you target specific positions, companies and industries.

The Focus Your Career Workshop Series is unique to Bentley University and is our most popular program.

The course is held periodically on campus. Click here for dates and more information. The program is free for Bentley alumni.
