Overview: This workshop is a part of a series of workshops being offered around the country to honor the late Margaret A. Davidson, an icon who mentored and befriended many of today’s coastal leaders. The workshop, designed by The Coastal Society and supported by a variety of coastal-focused organizations, was developed to benefit our next generation of coastal practitioners, from students to early- and mid-career coastal professionals. 

Preliminary Program Description: The morning sessions will feature inspirational testimonies from coastal professionals, discussion of career options, employment prospects, and career opportunities in the Charleston area and around the nation. The afternoon will provide a series of small group discussions about various skills needed to succeed such as resume development, interview tips, how to successfully engage with a mentor, and networking.
