Career Expos Help Seniors Explore Post-Undergrad Options
Feb. 19, 2013
The career expos are open to enrolled students and alumni who have a degree from UT Dallas.
Spring semester brings a renewed focus on career options for seniors set to be graduates in a few months.
To answer the call, the UT Dallas Career Center will host a series of career expos in upcoming weeks to help students connect with employers from school districts, nonprofit organizations, corporations, small businesses and government agencies.
“We want to do all we can to provide students with an opportunity to meet prospective employers and to network with others in their chosen fields before they leave campus,” said Lisa Garza, director of the Career Center.
The expos are open only to currently enrolled students and alumni who have earned degrees from UT Dallas.
