SHPE latinXfactor™: Sharpen Your Professional Edge is a series of carefully curated webinars focused on early career readiness and professional development.  These workshops are designed to help participants make the delicate transition from being a student in STEM to successfully navigating the unwritten rules of the corporate, government or academic world.

Participants will:

  • Gain a competitive edge in the workforce
  • Increase skills for transitioning into the corporate world
  • Become a more qualified candidate for industry partners
  • Strengthen their professional presence in person and online
  • Be well prepared for interviews during the National Convention

This program helps identify that special something—that X-factor—and shows how to use it to excel as a student, a professional, and leader. Our subject matter experts cover topics ranging from how to ace an interview to navigating the impact of cultural norms on communication and how to become an innovative thinker.
