Business Pathway to Success

Event header image

The Business Pathway to Success event is designed to be a mini business conference for our juniors and seniors preparing to make the transition from college to campus.  It is a networking and industry information experience for our students. We include a keynote speaker from the local Sacramento region to provide insights and advice on current topics relevant to students preparing for a successful career in business. Following the keynote and a full catered lunch are two round table discussion sessions where students and professionals are given the rare opportunity to sit down for candid and helpful conversations.  During the roundtable sessions, we ask professionals to represent their industry, providing relevant advice and information. The event concludes with a Networking Fair, giving student participants the opportunity to get to know each company in more detail.  Recruiting is always welcome but not a required component for company participation.  Company sponsorships are invited to present the event to our students and door prizes are provided by participating companies.  Students are expected to dress in professional attire and pre-register for the event.   This year we offer Business Pathways to Success in a 3 part series:
