UMKC's Regnier Career Accelerator

Join us at Plexpod - Westport Commons on March 3 for an exciting and informative day of networking and helpful job hunt information!

Panel Discussion: “The Rules of the Hunt: Follow It? or Forget It!”

We’ve all heard them before: “Always wear a suit to an interview.” “Your resume should never be longer than a page.” “Send a hand-written thank you note.” -- They’re the rules of applying for a job. But are they true? Attend our exciting panel and find out what the people in charge of hiring in 2017 really think!

Rotate through a series of tables with a small group of fellow students and have the opportunity to connect with a variety of startups and innovative companies in our fast-paced, speed networking session.
