    Exiles Bar

    Event Overview:

    Members of RPCV/W are invited to attend a free professional development workshop at Exiles Bar on U St on Thursday, April 25, 6:30-8:30. We’ll spend the first half of the workshop mapping your personal and professional trajectory to identify where your passions and skills intersect. And when we say “map” we mean it literally—bring a pen, paper, and a copy of your resume and get ready to roll up your sleeves. 

    You’ll craft a cohesive professional narrative that you can use as your own ‘elevator pitch’ in response to questions like “tell me a little about yourself” and “why do you want this job?” We’ll spend the second part of the workshop practicing the delivery of your narrative and honing it so you can use it at job interviews and networking events.

    What to bring: 

    Pen and paper; a copy of your resume.

    About the Presenter:

    This workshop will be taught by Tasha Prados (RPCV Peru 2011-13) a strategist with ten years of international project management, communications, and marketing experience with ad agencies, brands, publishers, and international nonprofit organizations. Tasha is passionate about supporting purpose-driven business leaders, entrepreneurs, and organizations in realizing their full impact through strategy consulting, brand development, and storytelling.
