2016 Career Conference for Seniors, Graduate Students, and Alumni

2016 Career Conference for Seniors, Graduate Students, and Alumni

The UTSA University Career Center would like to congratulate you on reaching the last phase of your college career! In recognition of this hard earned achievement and in the interest of helping you bridge the gap between college and your career, the University Career Center would like to cordially invite you to the 2016 Career Conference.

The purpose of this event is to help guide and prepare you for the challenges you may face in the process of finding your new career. We would also like to help you develop your networking skills, find the right professional associations to join, and learn about financial literacy, especially as student loans come due or new financial challenges appear! This day will be filled with informative workshop sessions and networking opportunities lead by expert staff and employers who often recruit at UTSA. This event will also include breakfast, an etiquette lunch, and light snacks throughout the day. Additionally, students will be entered into a drawing for prizes to be given at the end of the day.

Let this event be an excellent jump start to a successful year!
