Students Are Invited to Attend the Virtual Health Career Meet-Up

The Career Center invites students to attend the virtual Health Career Meet-Up from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22. Students need to register for the event in Handshake. Once registered, they will be able to access the Zoom link for the event. 

This event will be a come-and-go virtual event. A Zoom room will be used as a “reception area.” After students log in for the evening, they will be directed to the meeting technology utilized by the employers they hope to network with. It’s recommended that students prepare for the evening by reviewing the list of employers attending and preparing conversational questions.

“Career meet-ups were designed to provide students at every stage in their college career the opportunity to explore the industry area being represented, said Ashley Motley, Career Center Assistant Director and liaison to the College of Arts and Sciences. “It was important to us to try to continue to make that opportunity available in a virtual space.”

This free networking event is intended to bring employers and students together to facilitate connections in the health, fitness and wellness fields. Some students may be seeking opportunities to enhance their medical or graduate school applications, while others are seeking alternative careers in medicine or wellness. Any student wanting to learn about careers in health or seeking either part-time, full-time or continued education opportunities are encouraged to attend.

The K-State Career Center will also host a Wildlife and Natural Resources Career Meet-Up from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28. This event will be facilitated in the same format as the Health Career Meet-Up and will be the final networking event hosted by the Career Center for the fall semester.
