Career Events for Graduate & Adult Students and Alumni

DePaul’s annual winter Career Week has moved and expanded! In an effort to bring even more career-enhancing programming and professional development opportunities to DePaul adult students, graduate students and alumni, we’ve moved our events from February to November to coincide with National Career Development Month and Adult Student Week.
DePaul Career Development Month presents an exciting series of networking events, employer panels, webinars and workshops designed to help you discover strategies to build and manage your career, develop your job search skills, engage with industry experts and make connections. Whether you are just launching your career or are a seasoned professional, Career Development Month has something for you!

Career Forum & Keynote Brunch

Attendees will examine their strengths and weaknesses, learn how they learn, replace their elevator pitch with a golf ball pitch, and will be given some fresh ideas about job titles and descriptions. You’ll never look at the term “business development” the same way again.

Join DePaul alumnus, Bill Snow, to hear his fast-paced, insightful, and often humorous story about how he turned career stagnation and frustration over a lost business opportunity into a self-published book, a column with an online periodical, job opportunities, business ventures, and eventually a book deal with a large publisher.
