    Apply starting 8:00am April 1, 2019.
    Registrations are open until 5:00pm May 3, 2019.

    The Rising Senior Symposium is a two-day event open to students who will be seniors in the 2019-20 academic year and who want to prepare themselves for their transition out of CC. This symposium includes a housing extension until Saturday, May 18, at 5 p.m.*

    The Rising Senior Symposium will again offer two tracks this year: a General Track, serving students interested in all industries; and a Consulting, Finance, and Business Track, serving students interested in competitive business opportunities. Both rising seniors (current juniors) and rising juniors (current sophomores) are encouraged to apply for the Consulting, Finance, and Business Track due to the hiring cycle for these industries.

    Why you should take risks in your career
    Why networking is a critical part of career success
    How to polish your resume and LinkedIn profile
    How alumni can help you find jobs

    Valuable connections with CC alumni
    A fancy leather padfolio to take to interviews
    Two full days of professional development seminars
