Next Stop: Your Magazine Dream Job

Get Your First Job! 2019 Schedule

Take Note! This program is only open to recent grads (you graduated in 2018 or 2019). The first session will begin the second or third week of September and classes will be consecutive with the exception of holidays. Groups are small to be as effective as possible. Once the maximum group size is enrolled, I will contact all students with a survey to choose a day to meet weekly via conference call (i.e., Wednesdays at 11 a.m. or Thursdays at 8 p.m.) based on the group’s availability. There will be no makeup sessions. Classes and class order are subject to change.
