Career Readiness Programming The Washington Center (TWC)'s Career Readiness Programming is a mix of workshops, one-on-one career advising, networking events and assignments designed to complement what you'll learn at your internship. Through this programming, you'll develop the professionalism, communication skills and network necessary to excel in any work environment. Professional Development Workshops Each semester or summer, TWC offers 30 to 40 events designed to help you navigate the job market and prepare for both personal and professional success in the workplace. You'll gain access to a range of online professional development workshops, which you can choose to attend based on your interests (or opt to take them all)! These workshops are self-paced, so you can complete them on your own timeline and schedule. Past professional development workshops have included Professional Goal Setting, Negotiating Salary and Benefits, Professional Branding, Writing a Federal Resume and Virtual Networking. e professional development workshops gave me the language, strategies and skills to help me articulate my personal brand. As a result, I'm better positioned to determine what I'm looking for in a career and how to market myself as an asset to prospective employers.

Each series will have multiple discussion-based, group-oriented sessions centered around a topic related to career success. Past examples of this programming include our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion series, CliftonStrengths series and Student Wellness series.
