A mini-workshop on “personal branding and job search readiness” targeted towards students of color was held on April 9, 2016 at the University of Illinois, Chicago.  This event was sponsored by the Outreach Committee of KOWIN whose mission is to bring  mentoring program to students and college campuses.  Special thanks to Lucy Park, Jae Choi Kim, Elizabeth Adamczyk and Esther Yang for their support.  Encouraged by the incredibly positive response by students, the Outreach Committee plans to host another workshop at a different campus later this year.
