Create your best future.
Coach Chat, a career education program created for Emory alumni, is designed to stimulate career thinking and share ideas, tools, and resources.
Topics are not only designed for the immediate job seeker—rather, they are designed to help alumni at all career levels navigate the natural change and complexity of professional and personal lives. Alumni can join Coach Chat to listen and participate in career-related conversations including “The Psychology of Networking” and “Your Professional Story.”
Sessions feature guests including the EAA’s Executive Career Coach Jodie Charlop 82Ox 85C, other career professionals, authors, alumni, business/community leaders, and other friends of Emory engaging in timely career conversations.
Coach Chat sessions are interactive, providing the opportunity to ask questions during the sessions. To participate, register for your session of choice and join the webinar. Past sessions are available for download to Emory alumni. Coach Chat is free to Emory alumni and available at a nominal charge to others.

Coach Chat: Discovering Your True Purpose
Do you ever catch yourself wondering “what’s the point of all of this?” With uncertainty around every corner and mantras like “do more with less,” this is a common reaction for all of us. Join Brandon Smith, a leading expert in leadership and management communication, founder of theworkplacetherapist.com, as he discusses how to remain focused on defining our purpose for our careers and life despite the pressures to settle for what is easy or safe. The good news is that with some thought, planning and intentionality, discovering (or rediscovering) that direction can be done. Learn common traps to avoid that, if not successfully navigated, could result in us staying stuck our entire lives. Register.
