GOALS & OBJECTIVES:

There are three main goals we hope to achieve with this event:

Prepare

To help students become better prepared for the all important Fall Recruiting and Interviewing Season by introducing them to different industries and functions that they would like to explore further, along with the ability to meet and network with several career professionals in those fields.

Understand

To allow them to better understand their strengths and weaknesses via direct and constructive feedback from corporate representatives in a low-risk environment.

Sell

To deliver a unified message to students from Corporate Executives and Recruiters regarding the current state of the economy, give them an idea of the competition in today's marketplace, and provide them with advice on how they can effectively "sell" themselves.
