Career Month- February 2019


The University of Minnesota Alumni Association helps ignite career success for all alumni, no matter location, industry path or life stage. Throughout February, the UMAA is rolling out a series of in-person and virtual events for its first-ever Career Month, to highlight and support alumni and student career development.

Through webinars, workshops, Facebook Live discussions and networking events around the world, alumni can gain valuable career development and grow their professional networks.
