Choosing a major can be very difficult, choosing a career path, just the same. This workshop will give you some insight into what MyPlan is and how it works and what your results will show you. After that, we will dive into Odyssey Plans! A fun activity that looks into the future - at least five years into the future.

How to Prototype an Informational Interview

When you need answers, need to see how something will work, if it will work in your life, you have the opportunity to "prototype" it. Prototyping the Life Design way is all about finding ways to try things out. Prototypes should be designed to ask a question and get some data about something you're interested in. Prototypes are a great way to start a conversation, and, more often than not, one thing typically leads to another. They allow you to try and fail rapidly without over-investing in a path before you have any data. Join us as we dive into prototypes and how this design style can help you with conversations at the upcoming expos or in an informational interivew, or as you prepare for internships, jobs, or even deciding a major.

Brainstorming and Prototyping to Design Your Life
There are many aspects to factor in when Designing Your Life. This workshop is designed to teach you new ways to brainstorm to help you answer questions about your life, provide some group activities to get your brainstorming juices flowing, and then explain the valuable process of prototyping. Prototyping to design your life includes conducting life design interviews, or informational interviews, as we call them in Career Services. It also includes ways to quickly, in a cheap way, make an easy "creation" (doesn't have to be a physical prototype) that will help you to see whether or not that is something you want in your life. In Life Design, you are both the designer and the designee (you are designing for yourself!) We hope these tips, tricks, and tools will help you to build your way forward and design a life you love.
