Hundreds of UT Tyler alumni and friends were on campus this past week to share their career insights and success stories with thousands of current students at the university’s first Career Success Conference, publicity officials said.
“We are excited to host presidents and CEOs of various industries, medical professionals, artists, scientists, lawyers and speakers from many other career paths. It’s a great opportunity for students, alumni and friends to come together to talk about what it takes to be successful,” said Michael Tidwell, UT Tyler president.
The full-day conference experience included networking opportunities as well as panel discussions and interactive forums with the speakers.
It concluded with a convocation and a graduate student networking reception.
The 200 speakers represented a wide variety of industries including health care, legal, retail, non-profit, education, politics and small business. An equally wide-range of topics were covered during the sessions such as personal branding, leadership skills, emotional intelligence, career paths and more.
