UMBC’s fourth annual Career Week offers an opportunity for current students to “get connected to the rest of the world” and “explore their professional options” through presentations, workshops and one-on-one mentoring with alumni and employers.
In today’s economic climate, it is important for UMBC students to begin exploring their career options as early as freshman and sophomore years. However, what may not be as obvious is the relationship between academic major and career options. Career Week is designed to bridge the gap. Each event has the potential to speak to the needs of any student, no matter the student’s status in the career development process – from undecided major to graduating senior.
Check out the types of events lined up for this year and encourage students to create their own Career Week schedule! Detailed information can be found at http://www.careers.umbc.edu/careerweek/.
