Charting the Future Sessions I

2-2:35 and 3:20-3:55 p.m.

Career Exploration

Alana Hentges, associate director of career and employment services

Tired of hearing “So, what are you going to do when you finish college?” Then this is the session for you! We’ll take you through the three steps of career development, provide you with strategies for exploring career options, and highlight career resources exclusively for Puget Sound students.


Time management and stress: Taking a moment to slow down and think

Charlotte Emigh, learning support services coordinator

This session will offer students a chance to think about their strengths, as well as about the challenges they face in managing their time and commitments—both academic and co-curricular. Students will be asked to reflect on their current time and stress management strategies. The session will introduce further resources and strategies for organization, time management, and relaxation. Students will leave with active strategies and campus resources to incorporate into their lives.


Hack the Library: Tools to streamline your research

Rebecca Kuglitsch, science liaison librarian

In this session, we’ll move beyond the basics of library use that you learned in your first year to introduce tools that will prepare you to conduct the extensive research you’ll do in upper division courses, during summer research projects, for your thesis, and in your life after Puget Sound.

By laying the groundwork now, you’ll be ready to dive right in to scholarly creation later. You’ll leave the session knowing which knowledge management tool suits your purpose best, with an account set up for that tool, and with the knowledge to implement it. Bring a laptop if you have one.
