Job Search Tips Panel Discussion at the Career Fair

Make This a "Must Attend" Event at Convention

Everyone will gather in one spot to talk about one thing—getting you the job you want! We'll turn the tables and interview the job interviewers so you can see what works and what doesn't when searching for a job in the professions. Find out how to negotiate your starting salary and what are employers' biggest pet peeves. Companies from four different work settings (healthcare, schools, university, and employment and staffing) will be part of the panel and are there to answer your questions. Simply invaluable for those on the job hunt! The employers below have graciously agreed to serve on the panel.

Although this event will be held at Convention, we plan to capture the panel answers so that everyone can access them, so please provide questions regardless of if you are planning to attend.
