One of the most common questions I receive from students and parents is: Where do we start? There is no doubt that the college application process has changed—and it is still changing every day. No one knows the ins and outs of every aspect of the process, but with a little patience and intentionality, you can navigate the process with ease—but you have to get started first!
In this Webinar, we will cover 3-Ways to get started with your college process. You will learn:
How to Obtain Knowledge
1st gain knowledge about the college admissions industry. What do you know about the business of college admissions? Katherine will give you a behind the scenes look at how colleges view the admissions process.
2nd look at who you are and how you learn. Building self-knowledge is an essential step in the college process.
How to Find Your Resources
Now that you know a little bit more about who you are and how the world of admissions works, you need to determine your resources. Katherine will review resources (including online research websites).
How to Understand the Timeline
Knowing the timing of the college process is an important step. Every participant will receive a FREE copy of College Mindset’s Ideal College Planning Timeline, which we will review during the Webinar.

Researching is an essential part of the college process and other life decisions. For example, you might research companies when you are looking for a job or internship. Katherine will cover how to research colleges (mainly online) to help students determine what questions to ask and where to find the answers.
Networking and Informational Interviews

Connecting with people can provide you with insights about a college, major, or even a job- and it is something you can still do, even while we are practicing social distancing. As an adult, this skill will help you advance your career. In this Webinar, Katherine will show students how networking is more than learning how to make small talk. It is about finding your voice and asking great questions that will guide you towards your goals. Students will receive templates for conducting informational interviews, including how to reach out in an email and what questions to ask.

Change is hard, and we are all going through massive changes right now. I know some students are struggling to think about the future. However, knowing how to transition from one significant life change to another is a skill you will use forever. You will transition from high school to college, from college to adulthood. You will change jobs and maybe someday get married or become a parent. Being able to not only anticipate change but face it head-on is perhaps the most essential life skill. In this Webinar, Katherine will cover how to handle one or your first major life transitions: going to college. We will also discuss how this transition might look different this year, given the Coronavirus pandemic.
