The Milgard Success Center is proud to announce the "2019 Success Conference", a business career conference open to all new and current business students, as well as recent graduates. We're excited to invite you to campus for all-day activities, opportunities, and delicious catered meals.
Last year, over 100 students experienced specialized sessions and panel discussions with major employers in the fields of accounting, marketing, finance, management and general business. Sessions included "personal brand & pitch", "resume opinions & best practices", "marketing & entrepreneurship", "internships how & why", "how to ace a job interview", and more!.
This year we are improving the conference based on feedback received last year. Registration is open now until the conference reaches capacity. There is a registration fee of $20. We expect the event to fill so please register early. To hold your spot, your payment must be received by August 15th.
