Leadership Series Aims to Keep Young Professionals in CNY
2nd annual "Leadership in the Workplace" series
(Syracuse) The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry launched the 2nd annual Leadership in the Workplace series February 10, 2005 to help students grow beyond ESF and promote opportunities for these talented professionals to stay in Central New York.
The theme for this year is "Leadership in the Workplace -- Growing Young Professionals."
"We think our students come out with a unique set of skills and we want to do our best to keep them in our community where we can all benefit," said John E. Turbeville, SUNY-ESF Coordinator of the Office of Experiential Learning.
The Leadership in the Workplace series includes three workshops designed to help students decide their next step after graduation, prepare resumes and practice presentation/interviewing skills. There is also an opportunity to meet with local employers in an informal setting before the formal Environmental Career Fair on March 2, 2005.
The key ingredient for this year's Leadership series is the focus on identifying and inviting area employers to participate. The informal reception February 24 is designed to encourage networking. It is an opportunity for students to ask questions before the career fair while employers can do both scouting and promotion.
All SUNY-ESF students are encouraged to attend the Leadership workshops but primarily those close to graduation or completion of post-graduate work are the usual attendees.
