The MAPS 2014 PDI was a success!

Phew! What a great morning! Before 1pm, I was energized from hearing an accomplished alumni remind me why I’ve chosen this profession; I had discussed with a planning consultant how I to prepare now for my interest in eventually consulting; I spoke with a career adviser about optimizing my resume; I listened to the principal at a leading local landscape architecture firm talk about using my skills as a planner to fit in wherever I can find an opening; I received pointers for acing the interview process; I probed recent graduates about life after grad school; and I had a blast networking with my peers and with local professionals.

All thanks to the MAPS 2014 Professional Development Institute!

We at MAPS don’t like to toot our own horns, but we think we did a pretty darn impressive job with the first PDI. And we’re confident that the event can only improve from here as the succeeding MAPS leadership will embrace the event!

If you missed it, we’re seeing if speakers would be willing to share their powerpoints or allow me to upload a recording of their sessions. Megan also has some remaining resources from Morgan’s Center for Career Development. Let us know if you’re interested!
