Career Connections

Power up your career plan with access to Forté companies, industry workshops, career exploration, and networking. There are a number of resources available to you before, during, and after the conference to jump-start and ignite your career.

June 18 is our conference Career Day. You will have multiple opportunities to connect with company representatives. Join us for career insights and industry introduction sessions in the afternoon. A Career Expo closes the day.

We provide four great ways to connect during the MBA Women's Leadership Conference:

Conference Online Networking Community and Mobile App

Network with Forté companies before the conference. Learn about their organization and opportunities by visiting their sponsor profile. Let them know you are interested by selecting “request information” and adding your name to their lead list. Build a personal profile, take part in discussions, plan your conference schedule, network with companies and attendees, and stay in-the-know about conference events and happenings.

The Online Networking Community is available in May 2021 to conference registrants.


Career Expo

Forté’s Career Expo brings together Fortune 100 recruiters and exceptional talent (that’s you!) in a welcoming environment and on a personal scale. At the Career Expo, you will meet employers, explore company culture, and learn about long-range opportunities. Gain an advantage over your MBA peers by developing personal contacts with companies early in the job search process. It’s the only event of its kind where the most prestigious corporations in finance, consulting, consumer products, technology, and healthcare meet with a select group of the most talented and ambitious women in the country.

The Career Expo is scheduled on June 18.


Career Insights and Industry Introductions

Don’t miss these career panel discussions with MBA alumni and company representatives who will provide you with great insights and advice about the industries, functions, work, and specific opportunities for MBAs. What you learn can also be very valuable when selecting your electives and emphasis in your MBA program.

Panelists will also cover any growth opportunities, how things are changing in the industry, and tips on how you successfully navigate each career path. Start building your network now by engaging with professionals currently working in these fields.

The Career Insights and Industry Introduction sessions are scheduled June 18 throughout the day.


Conference Resume Book – Upload your Resume

Forté will compile a Resume Book of those registered for the conference and send it to Forté companies prior to the MBA Women’s Leadership Conference. Maximize your time at the Expo by submitting your resume in advance. In addition, a few companies will extend private invitations for interviews. You won’t want to miss out on these potential opportunities!

Put your best foot forward and reach out to your campus career services office and ask them to review your resume today. Instructions on how to upload your resume into the Forté Job Center Resume Database will be available in May 2021.
