LAS Career Exploration Night

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) Alumni Association, in conjunction with the LAS Student Academic Affairs Office, LAS Council, and LAS Leaders, will host our 14th Career Exploration Night (CEN) on Monday, October 4, 2010, at the Illini Union, Rooms A,B,C, and South Lounge from 6:15 to 8:30 p.m. (Please note that we have changed the title of this event from LAS Career Information Night to LAS Career Exploration Night to better communicate to our students the purpose of this event.) From 4:00-5:00 p.m., the University of Illinois Career Center will also host resume writing and critiquing workshops in Rooms 404 and 406 of the Illini Union.

LAS Career Exploration Night is our annual fall event for LAS undergraduates. As you know, one of the toughest decisions for LAS students is the identification of a career path. This evening offers LAS alumni the opportunity to return to campus to dialogue one-on-one with LAS students. Discussion topics may include: how and why they chose their career path, how they landed their first job, the advantages and disadvantages of their occupation, and the skills and academic preparation required for their career.
