Earlier this month, business students were given the opportunity to network with business leaders at the College to Career Conference.

Students had the opportunity to attend panel sessions based on their major --- accounting, economics and finance and management and marketing.   

Panelists included professionals from accounting agencies, banks, insurance companies, Acxiom and small business owners.

“I feel like the College to Career Conference always offers students to get insight to what it's really like to be out there in the real world, not just what our textbooks tell us,” said junior Maggie Good. “This year's participants not only gave us that real, relatable insight, but they offered a new perspective from various walks of life. We got to really understand what to expect in different sectors of the business world.”

Paul Vitale was the Distinguished Speaker and challenged attendees to determine their chosen career paths, to strengthen their leadership skills, and to set forth on a clear course to achieve maximum results.

329 students attended in all, which Dr. Linda Bean, the event coordinator was very pleased with. She felt that this year the conference made a stronger impact on students than last year.

“Students received excellent information and guidance from the panelists. Paul Vitale definitely made an impact on students. Several shared with me that he made them think about their future,” said Dr. Bean. “It was amazing to see 320 students’ eyes on the speaker without their phones in their hands. Our students looked great and interacted with the panelists. It was a wonderful day for students to be professional and that is our goal.”
