Career Services Presentations
Career Services provides presentations to groups on campus including classes, student organizations, residence halls, GSG, etc. We can present to your group on a variety of career- related topics. Presentation and workshop topics are listed below.
New for 2017-2018 - we have created presentations and workshops to best fit within class time frames. Presentations can be done with or without a workshop component.
We will try to accommodate presentation requests between 8am - 5pm Monday - Friday, but availability is limited outside of these hours. Requests should be made at least 2 weeks ahead. (Due to CareerFEST programming, we can only accommodate a limited number of requests during that time, and they will be taken on a first-come first-serve basis.)
