Preparing for your future
Twice a year, in October and February, our Career Week puts the focus on you and your future. You’ll learn how to present yourself online and in person, market in-demand skills, and nail an interview so that you can be prepared for Career Exploration Day—your opportunity to put it all to the test. Check out our activities calendar and follow us on Facebook for a complete list of Career Week events and options.
Career Exploration Day

You’ll be able to participate in mock interviews, resume reviews, and informational sessions, as well as apply for internships and full-time employment opportunities.
