Great idea, Pat! What do you do to promote PD?

Thanks Doug! We have a series of events such as how to interview, resume writing, how to dress for success, how to conduct a meal-time interview.

What has been the single most important factor in sustaining this event? Is a faculty member or faculty group the key to this success, or is there an annual event that this is part of? I am impressed that this has been in place for several years.

Are there associated costs with the program? If so, who covers those?
