Career Development Conference

MESA CONVENTION CENTER
TUESDAY, APRIL 26

The Career Development Conference (CDC) allows JAG to recognize student leadership and achievements and to provide students an opportunity to showcase their skills to potential employers. Since August, our students have been working through the JAG program to achieve academic, personal, leadership, and career skills. These skills will help them secure quality employment, military registration, pursue further education or training immediately after graduation.
