Student to Professional event prepares students for the job market
Oakland University will be offering a free conference to help students tackle the challenges of a highly competitive job market. The second annual Student to Professional Conference will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1.
Oakland’s sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to come and learn about a variety of job-related topics, including resume-building, interviewing, salary negotiation, conflict management, networking, social media and more. The event will feature four hour-long breakout sessions led by business leaders and professionals from around the region.
“This event offers a chance for students to invest in their futures by gaining the skill necessary for a successful transition from college,” said Roberta Rea, conference co-adviser and academic adviser in the College of Arts and Sciences.
The event will be highlighted by a keynote address from OU alumnus Charlie Wollborg, founding partner and “chief troublemaker” at Curve Detroit.
A continental breakfast will be provided during check-in starting at 9 a.m. Students also will enjoy a networking lunch where they will have a chance to practice their skills.
The first 150 students to register and attend the conference will receive a free portfolio, t-shirt and other giveaways from lead sponsor Chrysler Corporation. Register online at oakland.edu/studenttoprofessional.
