Feedback from Career Week 2013 Attendees
“…The event was well-planned and well-orchestrated. Yet, there was an air of relaxation
that relaxed the tension and stress that comes with being unemployed, and uncertain
about the future…”
- Donna Williams Murray, Alumna
“DePaul’s annual Career Week is engaging, motivational and
provides structure for those in search of their next career move. Each session provides
an active learning environment, where theory transitions into an action plan for
professional development. No matter what stage of your career you are in, you will
be provided with a step by step process for obtaining your personal career goals.”
