Welcome to RACDA's new e-newsletter, Career Currents! Each issue will showcase resources that RACDA Board members found helpful, informative, and interesting to share with our RACDA members, along with RACDA and regional updates. These board "picks" will focus on professional development, diversity and inclusion, and workforce development with students' career readiness at the center of it all.

College Students, Entrepreneurs or Both? 
Turning hobbies into jobs takes creativity and ingenuity.  Gen Z students have been busy doing just that. The article, Born to the Internet, Grew Up Fast in a Pandemic, highlights the success of several students and serves as a great reminder to encourage and recognize creativity and thinking outside the box with our students.
