Career Advice for Graduating Students

Monday, July 12/Tuesday July 13, 2021

Join other members of APCDA who work in university career centers to share the advice you give to students who are about to graduate in this second year of the Pandemic.  We did this last year, and it was a great success, but so much has changed that we believe it is time to do it again.  Given the extreme variety of pandemic and economic conditions, each community may face different issues. What have you learned from employers about job openings this year? What can new graduates do to attract the attention of employers? Are there other learning opportunities, such as internships, to move their careers forward during the pandemic?  Where are the opportunities? 

When you register, please select “I have answers” if you have any information or ideas to share, and select “I have questions” if you do not want to speak and just want to type questions into the Chatbox.
