Career fields and industries represented include nonprofit organizations, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, social and direct service organizations, and alumni engaged in health, international development, environment and sustainability, education, philanthropy, adovcacy, activism, and more. While this event is geared towards undergraduate students of all years, graduate students are welcome to attend.
