It’s never too early to think about what you are going to do after you leave Lawrence. In fact, thinking about what you might do after graduation could well open up some exciting opportunities whilst you are still here in the friendly confines of Appleton.

This Sunday (February 27) alumni will be on campus for the Shine Light, More Light on Your Future conference. I recommend that you seize the opportunity to meet our alumni and discuss their career paths and experiences. They are here because they love Lawrence and want to help folks just like you.

Here’s the scoop (see below) from the Career Center blog.

Date: Sunday, February 27, 2011
Time: 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Whether or not you know what direction you are headed, take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from those who have gone before you.
