Career Week

2019 Teachers College Career Week

Career Week 2019 is a new week-long initiative presented by Career Education & Professional Development. Career Week, hosted on campus September 23 - 27, provides a platform for TC students, alumni, faculty and multitude of industry professionals to collaborate, network, and engage in meaningful dialogue about career possibilities. This immersive learning opportunity will help students navigate their educational experience and maximize their potential, academically and professionally. Throughout the week, attendees will have the option to attend a variety of industry-based influencer (keynote) addresses, industry-specific employer and alumni panels, symposium-style break-out sessions, professional social-networking opportunities and much more! CEPD’s ultimate goal of Career Week is to provide an educational experience where attendees can explore career options, spark curiosity, ignite ingenuity in a competitive career climate, and encourage future change makers to create their own pathway for success.

We sincerely hope you will join us and #PowerUp your possibilities!
