The first CCC meeting of the year is not to be missed and will prepare you for effective career counseling in the year ahead! 

Two notable guest speakers, Governor Michael Dukakis and Barry Bluestone, will provide insight on the relationship between the political climate (especially in an election year) and the job market. Staying informed on this matter will help us as career professionals to have productive conversations and to develop effective strategies to support job seekers in this climate, especially pending the results of the presidential election. As always, there will be plenty of time to meet and network with other career professionals during the meeting.
