One of the professional development opportunities provided by the Disney College Program's education team are the Career Development Workshops. These optional seminars are offered as a way to enhance your future career path. Knowing that The Disney Company is where I want to be, it was important to me that I take advantage of these special opportunities during my program.
I attended two workshops on the subjects of Resume Writing and Acing the Interview. They were led by one of my facilitators from my classes, who has an extensive background in Disney recruiting. Having someone teach these workshops that knows exactly what the company is looking for was extremely helpful.
I highly recommend attending these workshops to anyone doing the college program. It was a great way for me to fine-tune my resume and learn how to effectively add both my Disney and previous experiences in a way that will highlight my skills. The interviewing session was also very beneficial in learning how to stand out during an interview and make a lasting impression.
This program really is what you make of it. To me, it's more than just working here and going to the parks. Being given these opportunities to grow, both personally and professionally, is something for which I'm so grateful.
