JMC Professionals Day offers networking opportunity for students
Main Ballroom, K-State Student Union
Thursday, March 5
1-3 p.m. Student Appointments
4-6 p.m. Networking Event
Student Appointments: You may sign up for a 20-minute appointment with a firm. The appointment may be a mock interview, a resume/portfolio/video critique or an informal conversation. Signups will be through your CES account. You must have a resume uploaded to select a time. Signups will open Feb 23 and stay open until all are full. To find an interview, log into your account, click on On-Campus Interviews, enter 3/5/15 into both interview date slots and search. The companies will have a designation of JMC Professionals Day so you will know who is participating. If you do not find a particular firm, it means interview times for that employer are full. Please arrive 10 minutes early. Business professional attire is required.
Networking Event: Meet with employers and seek their professional advice on resumes, portfolios, interviewing and social media skills as you transition from “college to career”. The employers will answer your questions about how to break into their fields; what qualities, skills or experiences they look for in candidates; or what you can do to make yourself more marketable.
