Career and Internship Networking

On Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015, The College of Public Policy and University Career Center hosted a Career and Internship Networking Event.  The event was a huge success.  A number of representatives from local, non-profit and government organizations met with College of Public Policy students and provided career advice and helped them to explore opportunities in their areas of study.  Many of the students felt that this event was truly engaging and served as a platform for networking with employers.  The College of Public Policy and University Career Center would like to thank all of the employers who came to present information that will help in meeting students' academic and career goals.

COPP undergraduate and graduate students will have an opportunity to connect with employers and community organizations and develop professional networks and get an edge in their career.  Employers and alumni in the industry will have the opportunity to share their expertise and offer career advice.  Light refreshments are available.
