Career Conversations

Career Conversations are informal, small group conversations facilitated by a Career Connections Center staff member to discuss a variety of career planning topics. It is a space for students with similar goals or who have similar questions and concerns to learn from each other.

What Are Career Conversations? 

Career Conversations FAQs:

Expect to meet with a CRC Staff member and a small group of your peers to discuss topics related to career development and career planning. Although this is not a lecture, we hope you can walk away with some action steps and ideas to move forward in your career development process. These conversations can also be fluid and flexible to adapt to the needs of the group.
Figuring out what you want to do with your life and career can be a little scary and overwhelming – not to mention isolating! But the good news is that you are not going through this process alone. Through Career Conversations, you can enhance your career development through:
• Building connections with other UF students and CRC staff
• Gaining perspective and insight, with a discussion tailored to fit your needs
• Empowering yourself to take action
Not a thing! You don’t need to bring anything with you or have anything prepared, but it may be helpful to think about some questions or topics you’d like to discuss or have an idea of what you’d want to get out of the discussion.
If you feel like you need some more individualized help or walk away with more questions, a good starting place would be to schedule an individual career planning appointment with a CRC staff member. Appointments can be scheduled online through Gator CareerLink.

Career Conversations are open to all UF degree-seeking students and alumni up to one year after graduation. You may RSVP or show up that day, but we limit groups to 15 students. We will meet in the lobby of the Career Connections Center on the first level of the Reitz and from there will find a quiet area in the Reitz to meet and talk.
