ACI Work and Life Skills Boot Camp - Fall Edition
From resume writing to investing pocket change in the stock market, and from career mentoring to landing a micro-internship, these virtual sessions are designed to prepare students attending ACI member colleges and universities for post collegiate success in the workforce. Bonus session: Q&A panel, featuring young professionals from Citi, will draw from personal and professional experiences to answer the most pressing questions about internships, networking and being an early career launcher. Each attendee will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Visa gift card.

Associated Colleges of Illinois’ Work and Life Skills Boot Camps deliver high-quality, intensive pre-employment skills and relevant information to juniors and seniors enrolled at ACI member colleges and universities. While all students are welcome to attend, we aim to develop content especially for low-income, first-generation degree-seekers and/or students of color -- students who may not have sufficient personal and professional networks and shared family experiences to support successful career launches.

Developed with funding from a Council of Independent Colleges’ First Opportunity Grant, the Boot Camps advance the efforts of member institutions to prepare disadvantaged students to obtain post-graduation employment, launch careers, and establish financial stability for themselves and their families.

Speakers

Khepera Walker
Professional Resume Writer @Warm Hugs Resumes
Khepera Walker is a former finance and administrative recruiter who’s passionate about storytelling and leveraging her skills to be of service. Her experience in financial recruiting allowed her to work directly with Hiring Mangers to fill accounting, tax and finance roles for contract and permanent hires. She has scoured thousands of resumes through the eyes of a recruiter and became keenly aware of the difference between a good and great document. Khepera has assisted with resumes, provided interview prep and built relationships with hiring professionals—while also staffing conventions, public accounting firms and law agencies in downtown Chicago. Gaining firsthand knowledge on how companies make hiring decisions, she became a professional resume writer organically after helping a friend pivot from an Amazon packer to a remote fraud agent. As the go-to for interview and resume related questions, Khepera launched Warm Hugs Resumes to support job seekers on their career journey.
