Coach Chat

Coach ChatCreate 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.
