Attending diversity conferences are a great way to boost your career prospects as you look for a internship or full-time position. As a newly admitted student, these conferences are an opportunity for you to gain exposure to the different types of positions available for MBA students and networking with companies that may not be on your target list.
Many of the conferences have fast approaching deadlines, so make sure to check out the MBA Annual Conferences 2015-2016 and get registered! There are two conferences happening in Chicago in October: National Society of Hispanic MBA (10.8-10.10) and ReachingOUT MBA (10.8-10.10). Remember to do some research beforehand of target companies and rehearse your elevator pitch. Contact the CMC if you need additional assistance in prepping for these conferences.
