Career Exposure Series

Have you ever wondered how you’re supposed to make a decision about what sort of career you want to pursue when you don’t know what’s out there? That’s exactly why we created the Career Exposure Series. We want to help students like you learn about various career fields by connecting with alumni who are working in your areas of interest so you can make better decisions about what might be a good fit for you.

We’re connecting students with alumni and other professionals on-campus, on the road and online.  

Many events require an RSVP or application. Login to your Handshake account to RSVP and obtain application instructions. Event details in Handshake are typically posted at least two weeks in advance.
