Join Your Career Community!

 

Career Communities bring together students who want to work in similar career areas. By joining one or more communities in Career Maverick, students will hear from their career counselor about events, internships, resources, and advice specifically for their career interests. As a community, they will have opportunities to talk with each other, with their career counselor, and learn to connect with employers and alumni from their areas of interest
