Common Good & Creative Careers offers students a variety of networking events throughout the year. In lieu of the large career fair model, we offer more intimate industry focused events wtih approximately twenty employers per event. Students interested in these particular areas are strongly encouraged to attend these events in order to speak to employers about their hiring needs, current openings and overall hiring timeline. CGCC also recognizes the importance of allowing students to travel to areas where some of these larger career fair events are occuring. This is why the Office of Career Strategy is a member of a few Consortium Events, which involve additional universities in order to recruit even more public interest employers.
