Your Career Path Tool Box – Resumes, Elevator Speeches and Other Tools of the Career Development Process: Emmanuel Ndifor, Head of Growth at Upkey, will walk participants through Upkey’s resume building resource and other useful tools from Upkey’s web-based, interactive service, designed to support professional success and dramatically improve the chances of career placement after graduation.

• Becoming – Growing Beyond the Labels of “Low-Income, First-Generation or Student of Color” to Career Success: Jessica Brown, Dean of Student Services, Engagement & Leadership, Eureka College, moderates a panel of early career men and women who explain how they decided who they were, what they wanted, and how to get it.
