Students and alumni seem to be looking for more than a job or a major,
they are looking for a mission and meaning; considering creating careers that
balance purpose and profit. The CU Denver Career Center is once again hosting
the annual hot topic career panel, from Careers in Beer to StartUps, this
year’s hot topic is all about making a difference; titled Social Impact Panel: Careers
for Change. The panel will consist of 8-10 directors, entrepreneurs, and
change-agents that will shed light on their professional paths and give insight
and advice on pursuing careers that help individuals, communities (both
local/global), and the environment. By attending this event, participants will discover how they can work
and study purposefully, creating a career path that impacts lives. After
listening to this panel of experts they will see the vast possibilities of
helping professions, so they may be inspired and empowered to be agents of
change. Last, there will be cookies, coffee, and a conversational networking
hour with colleagues and panelist. See attached flyer Social Impact Panel
