Career Exploration Conference

It’s back! This was one of the Knowlton Center’s largest events back in 2020 (before you know what!). We are pleased to announce that we are able to host this again. We have over 25 alumni and upperclassmen willing to share their experiences from many different career paths. If you want to get a jump start on career exploration/planning this event is for you!!!

Why: Because the students who attended in 2020 said it was really helpful in gaining an understanding of possible career paths regardless of their major! AND… it is an opportunity to meet with people in a relaxed atmosphere, learn about varied career pathways and be able to ask questions. It is also a chance to start building your professional community by getting to know some of our alumni. There will be alumni from the financial services field, tech, healthcare, marketing, art, nonprofit, and law, who all have different roles within those sectors. On Friday, You will hear from seniors sharing their advice and their different summer experiences.
