This summer, the College of the Canyons Career Center will present CareerCampSCV, a free daylong event designed to assist students and community members that are looking to build, enhance or start a new career.
CareerCampSCV will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, July 14, in the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, located on the college’s Valencia campus.
Described as a hybrid “conference/un-conference,” CareerCampSCV differs from other career-orientated events due to the fact that the day’s discussions and activities will be created based on the interests and involvement of the attendees.
The event will also include guest speakers, ad-hoc presentations and interactive breakout sessions focused on the various aspects of both building and improving one’s professional career — no matter their age, experience or career field.
“Attendees can come to simply listen and learn, or they may choose to get more involved and lead a discussion in their own area of expertise,” said Anthony Michaelides, director of the COC Career Center. “But the ultimate goal is for everyone to leave with some new contacts, useful information and encouraging leads that will help them move to the next step in their careers.”
Though CareerCampSCV admission and parking are free, those planning to attend this event must register in advance, as space is limited.
