Upcoming Events

The Career Center hosts a number of educational events related to professionalism, career readiness, and “day in the life” perspectives on careers from our industry partners in the community. In addition, we host an annual career fair each spring. Check back frequently to see what exciting events are scheduled that can help you meet your career goals.
