Best & Brightest Round Tables

CAREER READINESS OVERVIEW:

Beginning February 10th at 9:00 a.m. during the B&B Roundtables, we will be presenting a new Career Readiness series. Key activities involving skills and requirements identified as essential to career development by the National Association of Colleges and Employers will be covered each week.

Often employers call to ask faculty and advisors for top business students from specific majors to fill open positions. Students who participate in ALL seven Career Readiness dates will be included in a new student database available to such employers. There is value in each individual session, but attending the entire series will provide the maximum benefit.
