The 8th Annual Career Symposium is a popular career exploratory event that brings in 40 alumni from around the country to speak to over 150 Saint Michael's students about their professions and their career path since graduation. This yearly event is typically held on the second Friday each November and this year will take place on Friday, November 11, 2016.

The program opens with a keynote by alumnus Chris Eldridge '12, CEO of One Touch Trust in the McCarthy Arts Center at 4 p.m. followed by two back to back hour-long industry panels. Over 40 alumni panelists will sit on 13 different industry panels which include Tech, Healthcare, Law, Finance, Journalism, the Arts, Business and much more! Panels will take place in St. Ed's classrooms on the first and second floor (please look for signs). At 7 p.m. a networking reception will be held in the Roy Room on the third floor of the Dion Student Family Center. Prizes will be awarded to students who are present at the end of the networking reception. Heavy appetizers will be served at the reception and snacks are available in the classrooms. Please bring a water bottle.
