Career Conversations

As career readiness is critical to students’ long-term success, we invite you to attend a training session designed specifically for you to better assist students with career related questions and refer to relevant resources.

Career Conversations is an interactive training session where participants will learn about:

  • the career development process
  • eight key competencies employers are looking for when hiring college students
  • practical career-related resources, services, and programs available to students

There are separate tracks available for 1) faculty, 2) staff, and 3) student leaders.
