Leadership Academy Pillar: PURPOSEFUL or PROFESSIONAL (member's choice)

Start Smart is a program of the AAUW and is specifically designed for college students about to enter the employment market. The Start Smart workshop was a great professional development opportunity for women to learn how to determine what employers are paying for the job you want when you graduate and how to negotiate to be paid what you are worth doing that job.  Participants received nuts-and-bolts, real world information, learned about salary resources they can use, and had the opportunity to discuss these dynamics in roundtables with professional women.
