Virtual Event - Zoom
Determining what differentiates you from the competition and direct in-person contact with employers is the most successful way to secure future employment. At CareerUP, you will be taught key professional skills that you can immediately apply in a networking environment with employers & recruiters.
Benefits for YOU as a student:
Workforce partners, organization leadership, hiring managers, non-profit managers, recruiters, Edwards Campus students, Edwards Campus Program Leadership, Faculty and staff.
This event will run like a reverse career fair. Students in one of the below three areas will be broken out into their own breakout room. Employers will then go from room to room "speed networking" for ten minutes with the student in each room. Once the hour is up, new students will come in to the breakout rooms and employers will begin the process again. Students are welcome to go to a different "category" for another hour during the event if they wish to network with employers from other industry areas. Students can also stay in their zoom room category for longer if they wish to talk to more employers (and there are more to talk to). Otherwise, they can leave after their hour is up. Employers are invited to attend for the full three hours or can opt to attend for less.
