UMBC’s fourth-annual Career Week will feature an Evening with Professionals, Wednesday, March 30, 6-8 p.m., in the University Center Ballroom. The program will provide students with networking opportunities to meet graduates and professionals and learn the secrets of their success.
This year’s event, “How Did They Get There?” will kick off with a keynote address by top executive Kevin Plank, Founder & CEO of Under Armour, Inc., a global industry leader in performance apparel and athletic gear. Following the presentation, students will participate in informal round table discussions with alumni from various industries focused on topics including, “What Can I Do with My Major,” “Life After UMBC,” “Is Grad School Necessary for My Industry?” and more.
This event is sure to help ease the stress of networking and allows students a chance to build their portfolio of professional contacts. A full list of alumni professionals will be made available in the weeks leading up to the event.
