What is College to Careers?
College to Careers (C2C) is an annual leadership conference hosted by SHPE DFW, SWE Dallas and NSBE DFW! This FREE day-long event is intended to help students develop the skills, knowledge, and abilities you'll need to secure employment and a diverse career experience. As Professionals we help focus topics & coach you on how to make the most of your early career years!
Stay tuned for information on next year's conference and in the interim see highlights below from this past year!
2018 C2C Highlights
On Saturday February 24, SHPE DFW, Dallas SWE, and NSBE DFW invited 60 students from Dallas / Fort Worth area colleges and universities to enjoy a free day of professional development speakers, a panel of representatives from all three organizations, and get their resume reviewed by working professionals. While the rainy weather impacted our student attendance rate, the folks who did show up enjoyed learning about how to overcome obstacles, personal branding, entrepreneurship, emotional intelligence, and how to make the most of their early career years! We find our partnerships with NSBE and SWE to be very valuable and the students appreciate seeing us work together to affect common goals.
