These are unprecedented times, and now, more than ever, obtaining practical and tangible career advice has never been more important.

That’s why we created Campus Philly Conversations—better known as your opportunity to connect with employers. Not just “connect” as in “walk by their table at a career event,” or “send a LinkedIn request without a note” (we’ve got a lot of advice around that!), but to have actual conversations with young professionals and recruiters who have career advice to share with college students and recent graduates just like you.
