DISCOVER

Job hunting is challenging when you lack experience. Discover perspective from hiring professionals, gain valuable insight about the hiring process from the “other side of the desk,” and learn how to use this information to your best advantage.

NETWORK

In business, who you know is important!  At Career Bootcamp, you’ll be surrounded by career-focused peers throughout the conference.  You will learn about each other, your goals, and your aspirations for success.  You’ll make friends that will become a valuable addition to your professional network.

ADAPT

Arm yourself with the knowledge to master the challenge of beginning your career after college ‐ critical topics like vetting job opportunities, proper preparation for applying and for interviewing, and best‐practice tips from “insiders”  ‐ so you can begin your job hunt with confidence.

STRATEGIZE

Jumpstart your career plans and set your course for success. Learn to decode what organizations are actually saying in job ads and about themselves to zero in on the types of organizations and jobs that may be right for you. Develop habits that will be useful throughout your career.

The last day of the Career Bootcamp conference is a more individualized, interactive experience featuring small break out sessions to provide intensive guidance on each of the most important aspects of the hiring process to help you master the skills and strategies you’ll need.  You’ll get real-world feedback on your resumes and cover letters, get a professional photo taken for a social media tune-up, and master interviewing, from the most basic questions to the most difficult, in a positive nurturing environment.
