What’s a Career Connection?

Career Connections are on-site visits to organizations that the Center for Career Development provides for students interested in learning about internship or full time positions in companies around the New England region.
What is a Career Connection?
Career Connections have been designed to provide a unique opportunity for University of Connecticut students and employers. This opportunity allows students to visit an organization for a half day to gain a better sense of the industry and learn about internship or co-op opportunities.
What are some benefits I would get out of this trip?
This trip provides a unique opportunity to meet and network with HR managers, alumni, and executives. By touring, asking questions, and listening to key staff, students are able to further investigate or confirm their interest in different vocations and career paths.
What will this visit include?
The visit will generally include an overview of the organization, available internship, co-op, and full time positions, guest speakers and a networking lunch.
What role does the Center for Career Development play?
The CCD will be providing you the connection to the company and help set up the agenda for the on-site visit to the organization.
Are there any responsibilities I have?
Yes, students would be responsible for providing their own transportation but we will assist in setting up everything else while keeping you informed.
Sounds great! When and where is the next one?
The upcoming Career Connections the CCD will be hosting will be at The Hanover Group in Worchester, MA on Friday, January 15th, 2016.
