Student Involvement Workshop – “I GRADUATED, I’M CERTIFIED…NOW WHAT?” 2/24/22

 

The idea of jumping out into the workforce after school can be intimidating! We have a panel of some of the best in our interpreting community to walk you through your options. The panel will consist of managers, leaders, and business owners of interpreting organizations in our community. They will answer questions about opportunities for newly graduated and certified interpreters within their organizations, recommendations, and what to expect. There will also be time at the end for Q/A and networking.

Participants will compare and contrast different potential job opportunities within the Utah community.
Participants will discuss questions and concerns with experts in various interpreting fields.
Participants will network with working professionals and other students.

This workshop is aimed towards interpreting students and newly certified interpreters, yet all students and interpreters are welcome.
