One of the best ways to explore careers is by networking with those already working in the industry. "SACC-LIVE" is a real-time version of our Student-Alumni Career Connect (SACC), where successful alumni and students will meet online as a group. Students can ask those alumni questions about their career paths in the company of a group of peers.
Each event begins with a brief introductory "How To Network" training session and alumni group introduction before transitioning into virtual networking groups where you're free to interact and explore careers with each participating alumnus. Attendance at this event also earns you a stamp towards the #RUTGERSWORKS Free Tuition Challenge.

Throughout the year, Career Exploration and Success offers Career Exploration Nights (CEN) for each career cluster. CENs provide students an opportunity to ask recent alumni questions about their career paths from the safety of a group of peers.
Each event begins with refreshments and an introductory training session before transitioning into a larger room where students sit at tables designated by occupations and have a discussion led by recent alumni. This event is an excellent opportunity to explore various career paths in a more informal environment.
