This years Career Day is going to have a slightly different format. All events will be held in the D. P. Culp Center on ETSU's main campus.

We will have two workshops for current students and alumni regarding "Getting Ready for the Job Market" held on the 3rd floor in the Forum Room. In addition, we will have a 3.0 hour CEU offering in ethics entitled "Ethical Issues for the Information Age" in the Martha Street Culp Auditorium on the 1st floor.
