Career Week 360° Retrospective

The first ever Career Week 360° was a success!  On Monday, we had a full house in the Last Minute Showcase Prep workshop as students finalized their approaches for the Employer Showcase.  On Tuesday and Wednesday, there were 36 companies exhibiting at the Employer Showcase, where students and alumni had the opportunity to talk to these great organizations.  Bombardier and Orbital Sciences Corporation wowed students on Tuesday night with informative presentations.   CEO David Storch from AAR Corp. spoke to several business classes on Wednesday and inspired us all.  The Networking Skill Builder Reception, held on Wednesday, was a wonderful event where 12 employer guests guided students and alumni through the networking process, and then everyone had the chance to put our new knowledge into practice during a reception (thanks to the Office of Alumni Relations).  The FAA Deputy Assistant Administrator of the NextGen program, Pamela Whitley, spoke to students on Thursday and gave valuable insight into career opportunities within NextGen.    We finished the week with a Take Action & Follow Up presentation where students had the chance to write thank you notes and ask for feedback.   Thank you to everyone who participated in all of the events!
