Career Exploration & Entrepreneurship Seminar
The Business Club and Division hosted a new event this spring, a Business Career Exploration & Entrepreneurship Seminar held on April 3, 2014 at the Signal Peak Campus. Over two hundred students and community members attended the seminar which ran simultaneously along with the annual Job Fair sponsored by Career and Student Employment Services. Most sessions had standing room only including the general session, featuring guest presenter, City of Casa Grande, City Manager, Jim Thompson.
Eighteen workshops featured program information including panel sessions with industry representatives giving tips and options on career paths. Career areas included Accounting, Business, Entrepreneurship, Computer Information Systems, Culinary Arts and Hotel and Restaurant Management. Students learned how to improve job interview skills by Harrah's Ak Chin Casino human resource personnel. Additional topics featured a True Colors® career personality assessment session and University business transfer program information. Business Club members and the BUS260 Applied Business Seminar students were presenters at the seminar, along with division professors, Student Services, University representatives & the Small Business Development Center.
The annual Division Advisory Committee was scheduled immediately after with industry guests on current business trends and to introduce the new BUS196 Applied Business Internship course the college is offering and open to all disciplines through Tabatha Smith, Director of CAC Experiential Learning & Internships. The Advisory Committee members provide guidance, information and feedback regarding business workforce needs and curriculum program structuring for a better trained workforce.
We would like to thank all the participants from the community and our students for making this event so successful. More information about the event may be found below.
