More about the Career Conference: The primary goal of the Career Development Conference is to offer a platform to help job-seekers and graduates be better prepared for entry into the workforce. We do this by encouraging participation from skilled professionals, agencies and sponsors in the promotion of education and diversity. The first Career Conference was introduced in 2010, as a program to help displaced Asian workers better prepare for re-entry back into the workforce. This program was well received and had been hosted annually since.

 

If you think this program can be beneficial to you or a college age family member— please join us on Jan. 24th at NCSU. This invitation has been extended to your group and friends.
