Are all you WarHawks ready for the Career Fair! The anticipation is almost brutal, but throughout the week there will be some events to get prepared for the big event. We will call this the Career Week! An entire week of events dedicated to succeeding in the professional world whether it is through a specific career or just getting through the interview process.
You may be asking yourself, “Well Codi, what kinds of events could there possibly be that I haven’t already attended. Or what kind of information could be given that I haven’t learned in class?” Career Week will be hosting events on personal branding and networking, interview success, and how to impress employers. All with keynote speakers to provide you with the best information from the best of the best! There will also be panels to discuss certain career choices, which include Supply Chain Management, Human Relations, Information Technology and Management.
Here is the Career Week Events that you should mark down on your calendars!
