Calling all Technovation Alumnae! Join us for our 2022 workshop series designed specifically Technovation alumnae at the start of their careers. We know that applying and interviewing for internships and jobs can feel overwhelming, but we’re here to help! Join us for a career development workshop and get advice on things like interviewing, building a professional network, and how to figure out if a workplace is the right fit for you.

Between now and March, Technovation is offering three (free!) career-focused workshops. While all alumnae are welcome at any or all of the workshops, each workshop will be tailored for a different regional audience, and all will cover similar material (so it’s not necessary to attend every workshop). Our January workshop is tailored to alumnae in Canada and the United States; our February workshop is tailored to alumnae in India, and our March workshop is tailored to alumnae in Nigeria.

Wednesday, January 26th, 6:00 to 7:15 PM ET
