Professional Development Opportunity: Backpack to Briefcase

February 14, 2014

Backpack to Briefcase, taking place on March 15, is a one-day career planning and development conference that focuses on providing the tools and resources for a smooth and successful transition from university to the world of work. This event will offer innovative tips and strategies from industry experts, alumni and educators. 

If you've heard of this event and already written it off as an undergrad only event, don't! Though Backpack to Briefcase is geared towards third and fourth years students and recent alumni, with a wide range of expereinced presenters, event organizer Tony Botelho assures that this event will be of just as applicable to graduate students.

Today is the last day for the early bird ticket price of $25 and already 69 of the 90 spots have been taken--so forget the roses and put your money to better use this Valentines day and grab one before they're all gone.
