What is the Careers Conference 2010?
The 24th annual Careers Conference, sponsored by the Center on Education and Work
at University of Wisconsin-Madison
, is designed to serve everyone and anyone who is involved with career development and education for work. This national conference presents learning opportunities at all levels, from a basic introduction
for those starting out... to the very latest practices, strategies, and resources for those who are advanced
in the field.
What are the Conference Goals?
The Careers Conference is designed to:
Highlight the lifelong career development needs of students and adults
Address the needs of young people exploring career options in School-to-Career, Tech Prep, apprenticeship, and work-based education programs
Connect education with business and industry to enable School-to-Career transition
Focus on adults of all ages seeking education, training, job relocation, or development of new job skills to advance in their careers
Place special emphasis on using technology in career development and counseling
What Makes Careers Conference Unique?
Unlike many conferences, the Careers Conference provides practical information you can put to use. This is truly a conference for practitioners... the individuals who work directly or indirectly to provide career development services to youth and adults of all ages and abilities.
When asked what they most appreciated about the Careers Conference, past participants most often tell us that it is the diversity of the conference sessions and topics that sets the conference apart from similar events.
