  • Professional Development Opportunity: learning is key, this is not a formal recruiting event like the Career Fair.
  • Networking Opportunity: enhance your skills with professionals in AND outside your major.
  • Strategic Planning: there are many great workshops, but you will have a limited time. Choose wisely!
  • Attend the Conference Yearly: this event is best explored throughout your time at USC & is different every year.
