Join Women in Design Boston for the second event in our Career Series!

The average worker today stays at each of her jobs for 4.4 years, but the expected tenure of the workforce’s youngest employees is about half that. That means that incoming employees could have 15 - 20 jobs over the course of their career. In this fast-moving world determining what path to take your career can be difficult to determine. By learning how to design your career and take charge of the direction you are heading we can learn how to be more satisfied by our daily jobs and how to reach our long-term goals. This year, Women in Design is exploring this topic with events and programming that will strategize career planning, explore career paths, and give us the tools to build our own personal brands.

Divergent Paths:

Career paths are rarely a linear ladder, but rather a jungle gym of events and opportunities. In this installment of Design Your Career Series, we would like to explore the various ways notable individuals in the design profession have navigated within the profession to define and achieve their goals. We will be hearing stories of inspirational women across the profession exploring opportunities within traditional practices as well as more uncommon paths that their backgrounds have helped create.
