Student Opportunity Lab
The Student Opportunity Lab is an interactive session where attendees can seek personalized advice. It focuses on students and the tools that will help them achieve their career goals. The room will be set up with several tables of 10. Each table has a different speaker and topic. Attendees will switch tables every 20 minutes. The “mini” sessions usually combine a brief presentation with a Q&A.
