More than 120 attendees participated in the full-day event that focused on job searching, networking and professional development training.
After opening remarks from Audrey Magnuson, director of the UTSA Career Center, the keynote address was presented by Robert Lagoudis, USAA executive director of IT business management.
Speakers from the UTSA Career Center, USAA and other corporate guests delivered presentations on financial literacy, LinkedIn, social media, professional dress, resume preparation, salary negotiation, interviewing skills and personal branding. Additionally, an employer panel of professionals from a variety of industries discussed job search techniques.
During a working lunch, there was a presentation on formal dining etiquette. The day wrapped up with a presentation on professional networking and a networking mixer with students, staff members from UTSA, USAA and other corporate representatives. Throughout the day a LinkedIn photo booth was available for students to update their LinkedIn profile photos.
The event received numerous positive responses from students and employers alike. The UTSA Career Center thanks USAA for their generous sponsorship of the Career Conference, the many other corporate representatives who participated, and especially the students and alumni who took ownership in their professional development and success by attending.
