The Center for Student Opportunity is excited to host the 9th Annual Career EXPLO as a kick-off to the Homecoming festivities! This event connects our successful alumni and other professionals with students and young alumni who are exploring their career options.

Students and young alumni are encouraged to dress professionally and bring 10-15 copies of their resume. Need help with your resume? See our workshop schedule or make an appointment with the peer consultants, who are available Monday-Thursday from 5-8 p.m. in the CSO. We also offer free professional headshots at EXPLO. 

Who should participate: Current Alma College students and recent Alma alumni from all majors. Employers, including alumni of Alma College, and graduate school representatives who would like to share information on their career path, company/organization or industry or open job and internship position with current students and recent alumni.

What’s involved:  The event is set up like a career fair. Employers and graduate schools are stationed at tables for students and alumni to visit. We ask that employers are prepared speak with students to:
