VIRTUAL/INTL: Graduate International Women Designing Your Life Coaching Group

Oct 14 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Designing your life is not a short-term project, it’s an on-going career design and life design project. By learning and applying five mindsets and practical activities from the book, Designing Your Life, authored by Dave Evans and Bill Burnett, group members will identify possible career futures and what a well-designed next chapter in their lives might look like for them. The book, activities, and group discussions, held virtually via Zoom, are designed to help coaching group members to learn how to better navigate life’s big moment decisions —it will be fun and full of surprises!

This group is for any international graduate student from any college within Northeastern University who identifies as a woman and is seeking to immerse herself in a career design experience fall semester.

The group is limited to no more than 25 international female-identified graduate students. Only register if you are able to attend all sessions via Zoom’s virtual participation platform (missing one session is not a problem. Missing more than 2 sessions may result in not being able to continue with the group). Graduate international students will be selected first for this group.

We will be using the book, Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans. Make sure to get your own copy before our 2nd meeting on Oct 21st, 2020.


This coaching group is facilitated by Yejin “”Sarah”” Kim, a graduate career fellow in Career Design. Feel free to email Sarah Kim, [email protected] if you have questions.
