We will provide dinner in the Trojan Presentation Room (STU B3) from 5:00-5:30pm. We will then hear from the Career Center for a 30-minute LinkedIn and Trojan Network workshop, and then move to the Career Center in STU 110 to utilize their new IRIS Booth so attendees can take high-quality professional headshots for free! 


Our attendees will also receive a complimentary digital business card, courtesy of the Career Center. Digital business cards will feature a QR code directly linking employers to your contact information.
