You’re invited to attend the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) Career Conference on Thursday, February 22nd and Friday, February 23rd, 2024.

What is a Career Readiness Conference?

The CAL Career Readiness Conference gives you the opportunity to learn more about the transition from your career as a student to whatever the next phase is for you. Some of the benefits for you include opportunities to:

  • Network with CAL alumni 
  • Hear stories about alumni experiences 
  • Discover valuable strategies for pursuing careers
  • Find out how to maximize the impact of attending a Career Fair
  • And more!

This is not a career fair where you meet with employers. Students are encouraged to attend the Career Readiness Conference to prepare for the upcoming Career Fair, scheduled for February 27-28, 2024.
