Events to Reach Your 2019 Career Goals

EDITOR’S NOTE:  We officially changed our name from University of Maryland University College (UMUC) to University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC) on July 1, 2019. News stories posted on the Career Connection blog are now using the new UMGC name. However, because the transition to the university’s new name will take several months to complete, you may still see the UMUC name, logo and look on our website and other materials through early 2020. 

Fall is almost here, which means it’s a great time to check on the progress of your 2019 career goals! To help you stay on track, here are some upcoming career events for you to attend. Learn how to jumpstart your career in the intelligence field, how to gain experience while keeping your day job, what recruiters look for in candidates, and more.
