This is a great opportunity for students to gain career and professional development information and expand their professional networks by interacting with alumni.
The keynote speaker, roundtable hosts, portfolio and resume reviewers, moderators and panelists will share advice about:
- breaking into the job (and internship) market
- the skills and experiences needed to get ahead and how to share them with potential employers through your resume, cover letter, portfolio, etc.
- thriving in the many fields where your skills are relevant and in demand
They will also talk about their careers and backgrounds, as well as how they got where they are today.
This is an incredible opportunity to learn from—and network with—veterans in the field!
Dress for the event is business casual.
