Career Events

At the Career and Corporate Outreach Center, we strive to create lasting connections between employers and students. Each semester we help over one hundred employers and even more students connect by holding various types of career events.

For students, these events allow you to practice your networking skills, get your resume critiqued, and create opportunities in which you can meet employers who have open positions at their company.

For employers, these events allow you to meet students face to face in a more casual setting, as well as give you a unique opportunity to connect with hundreds of Nevada students at once.
