Setting Realistic Expectations As a New Graduate
Join ASDA District 2 and Dr. John Pasicznyk on Thursday, April 29th @ 7PM EST
"There is a lot of noise coming at new grads when they enter the workforce, with too many vendors, social media stars, and downright dishonest people creating a false sense of reality. Even worse, these external forces can lead us to make poor decisions which can impact our career long term. In my 11 years practicing, I've made more of these decisions than most, and although my story is one of many successes, I would like to share my experiences in the hope that others can avoid some of the failures I've endured. Choosing to get into this profession presents a tremendous opportunity for financial, personal, and professional success, but all of that can only come with great focus and a tremendous amount of hard work. I am excited to share my experiences in a light hearted but serious discussion with the soon to be graduated students."
