Event Details

The HBCU Career Development Marketplace Expo is one part of the larger HBCU Career Development Marketplace conference, designed to inform and educate top undergraduate and graduate students of Historically Black Colleges and Universities on developing careers in their fields of study.

Students are vetted to attend the full conference through their school’s career directors and they must have at least a 3.2 GPA to be eligible to attend. This year 16 HBCUs will attend the HBCU Career Development Marketplace, with an estimated 500 students. The conference is comprised of Town Hall Sessions, where students have the opportunity to speak face-to-face with experienced HBCU alumni from various professions, providing informative career-specific advice. The Town Hall speakers come from an array of industries such as business, education, medical, law, engineering, law enforcement, accounting, visual and performing arts, and various U.S. government agencies and branches of the U.S. military.

Although the students have already been chosen to participate in the full conference, the Expo portion is free and open to all local students who RSVP here. This Expo provides the opportunity to meet with corporations and government organizations who are exhibiting and seeking to meet HBCU students. Please show your student ID together with the ticket at the HBCU Career Development Marketplace.
