Career EXPO | CSB/SJU Alums
Wednesday, November 5, 2014
Gorecki Conference Center, CSB
CAREER EXPO OVERVIEW
- 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.
- Panelists share information and advice about major and career options, career paths, trends ...
- Brief introduction by facilitator
- Panelists provide a brief (3-4 minute) introduction describing their career path and current position/responsibilities
