WHAT STUDENTS SAID
Career Management Workshop:
Incredibly encouraging to realize the resources and pools of information I can access to help me reach my career goals in the fullest way possible.
Very knowledgeable and useful in an encouraging environment. ArtsForce rocks!
This was a wealth of tools presented in an elegant way to empower. Thank you.
Very useful, extremely glad I came! Worth every minute.
I have been running my own career path for a while, and I wasn't sure how much of this workshop would be new information to me, but I really feel I have new tools for success now.
I'm a senior. This helped me out so much. Please make this conference annual.
All of it really helps. There are so many resources that I did not know about!
This was the most valuable and applicable info we got. It was a directly relatable experience and facilitated networking.
This was very well put on and very educational. The only real suggestion would be to add additional content.
This conference was an overall success, especially for being the pilot.
Very impressed! Good job! I would love to have this conference be a model for other Arts colleges. It is something that should be implemented in other schools.
I left with new information that I will use immediately.
