Career EXPO | CSB/SJU Alums


Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Gorecki Conference Center, CSB


  • Career EXPO, open to students from all classes, majors, career interests, is an opportunity to learn about careers and organizations, connect with professionals, and practice/enhance career preparation.  Some students will be highly polished while this will be the first event for others.  Please give students feedback (dress, introductions, non-verbals ...) as well as information and advice.
  • Career EXPO depends on alum volunteers.  Review the Seminar, Fair, and Networking Reception details and then complete the EXPO Registration Form.  Please understand that due to a strong tradition of alum volunteers we may not be able to guarantee every alum a Seminar or Fair spot.  However, the Networking Reception welcomes all volunteers.
