*Please review all of the below information thoroughly in preparation for Career Wave 2016 on THIS SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 2016.*
We are looking forward to seeing you THIS Saturday on campus for Career Wave 2016. We are expecting over 1,000 students for this year’s event. I have included the day’s agenda HERE. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND ALL EVENTS UNTIL 3PM. We have over 40 alumni, parents, speakers and panelists coming from across the country and volunteering their time for this effort, so again I reiterate the importance of you honoring your commitment to attend. Unexcused absences will be noted, and at this point, any cancellations are highly discouraged and will be noted. The 3pm JobTreks and General Assembly sessions are optional. Everything else is mandatory.
Attire for the conference is business casual. No jeans, no sneakers, no flip-flops. You should remember to bring a pen and notebook, a sweater or jacket (some of our rooms get chilly), your Splash Card, and a great and professional attitude! This is not a job fair, so you do not need to bring resumes. Please remember to be on time to all of your sessions, as doors will close promptly at each start time.
At registration, you will be provided a name tag. Attendance will be checked throughout the day, and you’ll be asked to return your nametag at your 2pm session so that we can note everyone’s full participation. Also, you will be given the opportunity to request any of our speakers’ and panelists’ contact information AFTER the event. Please do not ask for this information during the conference unless it is offered.
Please review the AGENDA HERE and let me know if you have any questions. You’ll be given a final schedule of exact campus locations for each session at registration. A few additional “lagniappe” opportunities have been added at 3pm. Attendance is NOT required for these; it’s optional based on your interest. You can decide on Saturday if you’d like to attend.
Join us at 3 PM to learn about Jobtreks, the digital tool used at leading universities. It helps you organize your job search, from finding target companies to interview prep. Tulane students get a free account! To read more and get the tool in advance, click HERE.
Interested in startups or tech? Tulane has teamed up with General Assembly to offer an exclusive Startup Intensive in San Francisco over spring break. This program is recommended for students interested in entrepreneurship, technology, and turning ideas into products. Space is limited! To learn more see Ben Warshaw at the GA table, email email@example.com, and check out GA’s website.
Thanks everyone! I am available for you between now and Saturday, so if you have any questions or concerns please let me know. I am happy to be as helpful as possible so that you have an amazing experience this weekend!
