Career Week: Unlimited Opportunities

Description

Meet College of Arts & Sciences alumni and learn about their career paths as well as internship and job opportunities related to each major. Learn about careers by listening to alumni who have completed a job search, applied to graduate or professional school, and are working in a variety of occupations. Whether you’re exploring majors and careers, or have a plan following graduation, alumni have great advice for you!

Career Week is beneficial for all students, especially students who are:

  • Undecided and may be determining their major or different careers
  • Sophomores and juniors considering internships
  • Seniors seeking jobs
  • Any student who may be considering graduate or professional school.

Each year students obtain internships and full-time employment as a result of attending Career Week.
