Career panels are some of the most useful and therefore well attended career management events. At these panels, students meet professionals who work in various fields. They will have the opportunity to ask questions to panelists to learn more about careers and industry trends. There will be time for one-on-one discussions following the hour long panel. The career panel events planned for the 2012-13 school year include: Consulting, Marketing, International Business and Supply & Logistics Management.
The career roundtable series is designed to give a small group of students the opportunity to chat with a few professionals in a particular field. These events are designed to be an intimate event and therefore space is limited; students are encouraged to RSVP early. The career roundtable events planned for the 2012-2013 school year include: Finance & Accounting, Healthcare Industry, Real Estate Industry and Entrepreneurship.
Career Visioning Workshop
This workshop is designed for students who are seeking clarity on what career path(s) to pursue. Students will be required to complete a CareerLeader assessment before attending the course. CareerLeader is a fully integrated approach to business career self assessment built on the premise that your interests, motivators and skills will drive your future career success and satisfaction.
Career Changer Seminar and Panel
For students whom have already worked several years in a career and are struggling with how to transition to a new career, they will find this event helpful. We know the unique challenges these students face due to the time they have already invested into their current careers. In the hour-long seminar portion of this event, students will learn how to identify and sell their transferable skills, establish a plan to address experience gaps, and factor in family and financial considerations. The seminar will be followed by an hour for a panel discussion with alumni who have successfully transitioned to a new career. Attendees will hear firsthand how they did it. This is an ideal event for part-time and online students, as well as full-time students with significant work experience.
