Last Friday was an exciting day on campus because of ELEVATE your career. During this year’s development fair, students and alumni networked with almost 30 organizations and associations that attended to the event for two full hours. While some attendees were busy getting their professional photos taken…
…others were taking the advantage of our guest LinkedIn Coaches to review their profiles and gather some productive feedback to develop their profiles.
Before we move onto our News & Updates, we would like to acknowledge the high level of effort our Office of Career Planning put into organizing ELEVATE your career. Thank you, OCP Team, for hosting such a wonderful event!
