Career Day 2015
Students, alumni, and employers are invited to join us at the Marriott Fairvew Park in Falls Church, Va., to participate in two in-person events – a career fair and career coaching. The career fair will provide students and alumni an opportunity to meet with employers face-to-face to discuss the various opportunities available within their organizations. On-site career coaching will be available for students and alumni to discuss their career aspirations, work on their resumes, or practice their interviewing skills with a career coach.
