DI Workshops: From Paychecks to Paying It Forward

By: Tina Shaffer

Creative thinking, communication, collaborative problem-solving, and project management are some of the most sought-after skills employers are looking for in a job candidate. If you’re a Destination Imagination participant or alum, you already have those very skills. But do you know how to leverage your DI experience and skills in a resume, job interview, or new career? Would you like to learn how?

Our Alumni Council is hosting a virtual workshop on July 19 at 8 p.m. for high school and college students, recent DI grads, and all other interested DI participants and alumni who would like to hear and learn from some of our alumni on how to leverage your DI experience in your professional journey.

And remember—just because you’re no longer a team member doesn’t mean your DI journey has to end. There are many ways you can stay involved as a volunteer. Join some of our alumni at a virtual workshop on July 21 at 8 p.m. to hear about their volunteer experiences and the different ways you can participate at local, Affiliate, and global levels. They’ll also give a few social networking tips!

Check out full workshop details below.
