College to Career Conference 

March 17, 2018

The College to Career Conference is a one day program focused on student transition to the workforce. Topics will incorporate several of the six Student Leadership and Professional Competencies. Students will hear from community presenters who recruit and hire talent, local leaders who oversee workforce development and young professionals who have successfully transitioned from higher education.

This year's keynote speaker will be Janice Hall, an alumna of the University of Memphis, and she is the Senior Vice President, Global Sales Capability and Fast-To-Action at the Estée Lauder Companies. She brings a unique blend of business and HR experience having worked across both areas throughout her career. Her track record includes strong success in building strong, agile teams and developing new capabilities to strengthen the organization.

By attending this conference, you will gain an understanding of what sets you apart and makes you unique. You will learn skills that are necessary not only to become a competitive candidate, but also a successful employee. From that you will be able to identify and market yourself in a way that will help you manage and sustain a successful career. Empower yourself by knowing what you have to offer, what you want and how to ask for it.

Your ability to market your talents, accomplishments and value are a key part of enhancing your brand. The demands we face today include an unpredictable economy, very competitive and specialized marketplace, globalization, changing demographics, and strong leadership skills by all levels. In order to be successful, it is critical to set yourself apart. The College to Career Conference will help you do that.

Free registration comes with breakfast, an etiquette lunch and all the knowledge and contacts you can acquire. Get ahead and get connected at the College to Career Conference. If you have any questions, please contact Brian Deal at
