FAQ:

Do I need to wear business attire?

Absolutely not! The Expo is not a career fair, so you will not need to dress professionally. While you will be able to interact with some employers and providers, the purpose of the Expo is to learn about your options rather than interview for specific positions.

Can graduate students attend?

Definitely! There are several employers and providers who recruit graduate students, and graduate students are welcome to come explore their options.

What are the webinars?

There will be four webinars highlighting opportunities for employers or providers. These webinars will be held in Student Center 319, directly next to the Ballroom. Feel free to drop into a webinar before or after walking around the Expo. See below for the full schedule and details.
