Career Advice Roundtables (CARS)

Wednesday, September 26, 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m., MC Forum

The CARS program is designed to provide a dialog between professionals (including FSU alumni) and students seeking real answers to their career related questions. 

About the Program Part 1:  Students are encouraged to ask real questions to get real answers, for example:

  • What do you look for in a job candidate? What is one thing someone should never put on their resume?  Does what you major in really matter? What do you do and how did you get there?  In what activities did you participate while a student?  Did any of these help you figure out your career direction?  How did you get started in this organization?  What advice would you give someone wanting to enter this field?
  • About the Program Part 2: How it Works:
  • Engaging Conversation: The employer will moderate one round table and engage students in career related conversation, entertaining their questions.  Several students will be at each table to gain valuable info from the speakers and to ask questions.

Ever Changing Conversations: The students rotate from table to table seeking advice from all participating professionals (the professionals remain at their table).  Students are encouraged to visit all of the professionals and introduce themselves to each table. This is an informative networking event
