Career Planning at MIT is expanding its services and opening an annex office in Room W89-257 within the Professional Development Center on Vassar Street.
Career Planning , which is part of Human Resources, is a career resource for MIT organizations and employees. Its main office is in Room E19-238.
Beginning Dec. 11, the new Career Planning Annex will host a new career development support group on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. "Many have asked for opportunities to discuss with other MIT community members how they can best grow in their careers, and this group will allow ongoing discussions," said Ken Mattsson, a consultant in Career Planning.
The office also is offering a slate of career-related noontime workshops to address aspects of the career planning process such as exploring your interests and skills, group informational interviewing, and techniques for presenting your strengths in interview situations.
"Career Planning's goal is to support the Institute's commitment to help employees assume responsibility for their own successful development, and to help departments, labs and centers link their employees' career development with their strategic directions," said Barbara Peacock-Coady, manager and career consultant. "Expanding our services to be available at both ends of campus is a definite step in reaching that goal."
