This event is a Career Success Seminar (aka, Marketing U) developed by alumni of the SIU College of Business with the goal of helping current and recently graduated business students succeed in their job hunts and early careers.  Several successful alumni and friends of the college have come together to share their professional knowledge and network with students.
Purpose: Build your professional knowledge and your professional network in just a few short hours! The goal is to help you find and keep the best job for you!
How does it work?:

Choose up to three one-hour presentations to attend, one each starting at 10:00, 1:15, and 2:30 PM on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at the SIU Student Center.  You do not have to attend all the session. Please note you can only attend one presentation during a time-frame.  When choosing your presentations, please choose only one for each time-frame.

Sessions will include interactive presentations and small group/one-on-one discussions with the presenters. You will be able to network with the presenters, ask questions about any career topic, share your résumé, and learn about specific careers and industries.
Also, there is an informal meeting/networking with employers and alumni from 11:00-1:00. Additionally, lunch will be served from 12-1:00. This is a great opportunity to connect and network with alumni who are here to participate and present at the event. You need to let us know if you plan to attend the lunch/networking so we can make the necessary accommodations.

There will also be a photo session for professional head shots by an SIU University Communications photographer from 11:00-1:00 p.m. and again at 3:30 after all presentations are done.  No registration is required for the photo session; however, you must register for the event and attend at least one presentation session in order to have your photo taken. The photo session will be done on a first come, first serve basis, however, we will make every effort to accommodate everyone.
Bring copies of your résumé for sharing!
Dress code – Professional attire is strongly recommended.
