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. We have created presentations to best fit within class time frames. Presentation topics are listed below.
We will try to accommodate presentation requests between 8 a.m.–5 p.m. 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.
