This event will cover the essential career topics for new grads. You know, those things you didn’t learn in school, like how to write a resume and negotiate your salary.
“How’s your job search going?” may be every recent grad’s least favorite question. If you graduated in May of 2015 and are still looking for a job, that’s totally normal. But we know starting a job hunt can be overwhelming, and we’ve got you covered:
