ASCC launches Cougar Career Community

The Academic Success and Career Center has launched the Cougar Career Community, a Professional Series that helps students connect with a network of professionals. Working with our on-and-off campus employers we have developed specific Career Discussions to help students understand and network with this vast network of professionals.

Please register for the events on Handshake to receive Zoom contact information.

Starting off our series will be E&J Gallo Winery on Sept. 9 who will focus on personal selling in a virtual age. They will cover topics that will be very instrumental to students success at the upcoming Career Expo, including how to present yourself professionally online, sell yourself at Career Fairs, market yourself as a student athlete and an elevator pitch workshop.
