UMBC - An Honors University in Maryland
Career Week - April 7-10, 2014

Zombies are scary. Finding a career shouldn't be.UMBC's annual Career Week offers an opportunity for current students to "get connected to the rest of the world" and "explore their professional options" through presentations, workshops and one-on-one mentoring with alumni and employers.

In today's economic climate, now more than ever, it is important for UMBC students to begin exploring their career options as early as freshman and sophomore years. However, what may not be as obvious is the relationship between academic major and career options. Career Week is designed to bridge the gap. Each event has the potential to speak to the needs of any student, no matter the student's status in the career development process - from undecided major to graduating senior.

Check out the types of events lined up for this year and create your own Career Week schedule! Attend as many or as few events that make sense for where you are in planning your career path.
