Career Week 2015

Today marks the beginning of Career Week 2015! Frank Lanko, Senior Business Career Advisor, writes, “The program will feature a keynote speaker each night covering many topics including Personal Branding/Networking, Interviewing, and Preparing for the Career Fair (and how to impress employers!). There will also be events on Tuesday and Wednesday evening hosted by CoBE student organizations featuring a panel of industry speakers who will help students explore various career options within their programs of study. These are great opportunities for students to explore majors, career options, and network with industry professionals and student organization leaders alike. All of the events are free, hosted in Hyland Hall – and the keynote speaker events will feature free pizza (while supplies last!).”
