Spend a weekend engaging with mentors who want to help you get traction in your pursuits beyond campus.
Working Weekend was created in 2012 by Reed alumni who were concerned that the economy made the college-to-career transition more difficult for students. Annual events include panels, intensives, workshops, and MeetUp.
Mark your calendars: February 6–8, 2015
