Hear from and network with professionals from local companies and organizations who have found meaningful careers following their calling. Learn about potential internships and jobs as well.
Making a Living, Making a Difference is a networking event for students interested in exploring career opportunities that unite the goals of “making a difference” and “making a living.” During this two-hour social and networking event on Feb. 27, students will have the opportunity to connect and interact with a range of professionals whose career experiences and decisions have enabled them to make a difference while making a living.
