Career Exploration Nights (CEN)
In-person networking events that are a great way to return to campus and meet talented students exploring various career paths. Your involvement in this event will help students build their networking skills—and expand your network as well. Assist students by sharing your success story, career advice, and knowledge of “a day in the life” in your job or industry.
The Career Exploration Nights are a great way for Rutgers alumni from your organization to meet and build connections with talented students who have interests in your field. Alumni can assist them by sharing success stories, advice, and explaining what “a day in the life” of the job and industry is like.
Throughout the year, Career Exploration and Success offers Career Exploration Nights (CEN) for each career cluster. CENs provide students an opportunity to ask recent alumni questions about their career paths from the safety of a group of peers.
Each event begins with refreshments and an introductory training session before transitioning into a larger room where students sit at tables designated by occupations and have a discussion led by recent alumni. This event is an excellent opportunity to explore various career paths in a more informal environment.
