Overcoming Impostor Syndrome

Tuesday, March 02, 2021 at 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Virtual Event

Have you ever felt like you didn't belong - like everyone in the room was more brilliant than you and that your achievements paled in comparison? Spoiler alert: we all have. The tricky part is coming to terms with your natural humility when you embark on a job search and overcoming it at key moments when your job success may just rely on being able to communicate your value confidently.

In this workshop, we'll identify some common experiences of the impostor phenomenon and learn actionable ways to overcome it so that you can navigate your job search and career choices with conviction.
