Employment recruiters, as well as Furman alumni and parents are invited to introduce their companies, discuss potential internship and full-time employment needs, share their personal career journey and impart professional wisdom with students. This event provides a friendly space for students to practice their networking skills and gain valuable information, all while expanding their professional network.

Do I need to bring my resume?
