This 90 minute workshop is designed to educate families about the best practices and key deadlines of the college planning process by covering the following topics and questions:


What do colleges look for and how do you enhance your child's positioning?

How do you create a good school list and why is it one of the most important aspects of the college planning process?

What goes into writing a great essay and submitting a strong application?

What are your options - savings, loans, scholarships - and how do you minimize your potential out-of-pocket costs?

How is your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) determined on the FAFSA, what other forms need to be completed and how does the financial aid process really work?


How do you evaluate your financial aid award packages and can you appeal them to try to get more money from the schools?

How will your child make a smooth transition from high school to prepare for academic success in college?

What strategies will help your child build a solid resume and land a good internship?

What skills and experience does your child need to have a job when they graduate?

Add to Calendar 2:00 PM 8/29/20193:30 PM America/Chicago Becoming Your Own Job Search Superhero!

Are you wondering why your phone isn't ringing after you have filled out dozens of job applications online? Have you had a couple of interviews but not landed the job? Or maybe you don't know where to start?

In this workshop, we'll show you how to identify your super powers -- those unique and special gifts you can use to save the world, or at least your potential employer. You'll learn the best ways to write a resume that soars above the rest, because every superhero has a great origin story (though we're betting yours doesn't involve the planet Krypton or a radioactive spider). Finally, we'll give you some tips for fighting those villains that get in every job search superhero's way.

Join us!
