Career Success Conference

What is the CSC?

The Career Success Conference (CSC) is a networking event designed to allow business and industry leaders to share their experiences and wisdom with today’s students. More specifically, the conference is designed to help students build the personal and professional capacities necessary for career success.

Students can shake hands, speak, and network with business and industry leaders who want to share their professional experiences on variety of topics and discipline-specific panels. The conference hosts speakers from a variety of industries and backgrounds on our main campus. Each speaker brings their own stories of career mindedness, career development, and career success to the table.  Industry professionals, alumni, and faculty come together for a one-day event with the purpose of helping UT Tyler students make informed career decisions.

Students who attend the event have the opportunity to update their resume, take a professional headshot, sit in on a panel discussion, network in a field of interest, and establish professional connections before they walk the stage. Student attendees will also have the opportunity ask important career-focused questions, like:

  • How can I effectively network with professionals in my field of interest?
  • What are key skills and qualification employers look for in potential candidates?
  • How can I gain relevant work experience while still in college?
  • What strategies can I use to successfully navigate the job search process?
  • How do I find balance between pursuing my passion and considering practical career opportunities?
