Webinars, Overviews, and Cafes

Maximizing Career Success Through Strategic Volunteering*
Our students and alumni often volunteer in their communities in alignment with Walden University’s mission of positive social change. In addition to making a positive difference, volunteering offers opportunities to explore a new career path, cultivate professional connections, and gain new experience and skills. We will discuss a wide range of potential volunteer opportunities and how volunteering impacts career success.


Your Digital Identity as a Scholar-Practitioner*
Your "digital identity” is becoming increasingly important to building and maintaining your professional reputation. In this practical webinar, Dr. Daniel Salter of the Center for Research Quality will feature online venues such as ResearchGate, Google Scholar, Twitter, and Chronicle Vitae to connect with others in your field and showcase your own efforts as a scholar-practitioner.


Career Services Overviews

Resume Cafe
Thinking of updating your resume? Join us for Resume Café!  During this interactive webinar, we will give you advice for developing an eye-catching resume and describe how our OptimalResume tool can make the process easier.


Networking for the Underconnected Cafe
Is the thought of networking in a room full of strangers intimidating? Do you wonder how to prepare and make your connections meaningful? During this Café, we will discuss networking strategies that play to the natural strengths of both introverts and extroverts.


Curriculum Vita (CV) Cafe
