Careers for Pioneers

Date: 12:00pm PDT October 28, 2012 Location: Templeton Campus Center, Stamm Dining Hall

  • Event Image

Templeton Campus Center, Stamm Dining Hall

Join fellow alumni and parents to share professional, life, and education experiences and advice, and meet students who are eager to learn from you and practice their communication and networking skills with a friendly audience.   

The goal of Careers for Pioneers is to let students know about the variety of paths available to them as an LC grad, and to give alumni and parents an opportunity to share their knowledge.

At the event, you will choose a table that represents the career field or industry you are a part of, and students will have a chance to ask you questions. It’s informal and fun!

We are looking for alumni and parents representing a variety of career fields and industries: government and public sector, education, non-profit, business and finance, science and research, law, health and medicine, consulting, arts and media, marketing and public relations, math and engineering, web/IT technology, and others.
