The Leadership Breakfast is a buffet-style breakfast that hosts guest speakers, company recruiters, College of Business students, faculty and staff. This event is an opportunity for students to network with company recruiters before the Career Fair. It also serves as an additional opportunity for the recruiters to get to know students. After the guest speakers’ panel discussion, a recruiter from each company announces the majors they are seeking at the Career Fair and the type of positions they need to fill. Students are then given time to network with the recruiters of their choice.
Recommended attire is business professional. TIP: Make sure to visit the recruiters again during the Career Fair and mention seeing them at the breakfast. It is a great conversation starter.
