It will also provide an opportunity for students to meet with professionals and ask questions in networking events that provide students a chance to build networks and get to know some of our alumni. Students will learn and be inspired from an impressive roster of Metro Detroit's experts while discovering a variety of career paths. Skills workshops will provide students with feedback on resumes, practice interviews, networking advice, and related knowledge and skills needed for new graduates.
