Employer Panel
April 15, 2021 3 PM - 4:30 PM
This event strives to connect employers with students and allow the students to ask employers questions to better understand how to prepare for interviews, how to enter the workforce, or information about the company in general. We hope that the employers and students are very diversified. This will result in a variety of answers and questions. The students can get a closer look at different employers and what they require, and the employers will be able to connect with students and give insightful feedback about their careers.
