Career Symposia are occupation-specific programs designed to show students the variety of career options available to them, regardless of their academic major. The Alumni Office and the Career Center collaborate in the planning and in the presentation of the symposia. These programs feature successful R-MC alumni who describe how they have used their liberal arts education in their careers. The primary goals of the symposia are to assist students in understanding that they can do almost anything with their chosen major and that their liberal arts education affords them the opportunity to pursue a wide range of professional interests.
Academic departments are invited to participate and co-sponsor career symposia, particularly when the theme of a given symposia compliments a major in their department.
To discuss hosting a Career Symposium in your academic department, please contact Cathy Rollman email@example.com or call 804.752.3103.
