Stride Expo

STRIDE focuses on careers in Design & Communication Technology, Visual Arts, Computer Science & Information Technology, Construction Technology and Manufacturing Technology. Five concurrent sessions focus on key areas of career preparation:

Why get stuck when you can get going? What careers are you suited for? Get exposed to a range of Assessment Tools that help you figure out your best career fit.

Cut the hype - get real. Get a deep dive into careers you dream about. Learn about possibilities ; what are the best schools in a field? what do they need you to do before they would let you in? what's the cost of education in careers you care about? how much do they pay?

How is it like in the trenches? Get up close with industry professionals. Ask them about life in the industry you aspire to? what level do you get to start at? how rapidly can you grow? where do you reach? is it worth it? is it fun?

What kind of a person does your industry want? How you build the brand (your personal brand) so they will buy?

You have hit upon something new! How do Patent your creation? When's the right time to think about start ups? What's involved in starting up?

Are these questions keeping you awake? Get answers , network with professionals, improve self awareness , know the world you want to be part of, and, don't forget to make new friends and try your luck at the raffle.
