Beyond Rochester: Career Conversations with Alumni

Exploring careers?
Want to meet some cool alumni and parents?

Please join us for our BEYOND ROCHESTER series!
About the Program The MenuRegistration


In a relaxed setting, a small group of UR students will explore careers and fields of interest, sharing a meal with a UR Alumnus or Parent. These career role models will share information on their backgrounds and career fields, inspiring you to explore your academic and career curiosities.  The Beyond Rochester series is held in the Career Center Conference Room (DEWEY 4-200) by SKYPE unless otherwise noted.

These events are sponsored by the Gwen M. Greene Career and Internship Center and Office of Alumni Relations. Questions?  E-mail Michelle Marks-Hook or call 585-275-5375.
