The Career Development Conference, JAG's signature finale event which brings together all JAG students for a day of skill-based workshops, competitions, and a professional scholarship and awards luncheon. These events provide invaluable opportunities for JAG students to demonstrate the skills they are learning in JAG, network with JAG peers, and with our business and education partners.
JAG students credit the Leadership Academy events for getting them out of their comfort zone, challenging them to try new things and meet new people. It is one thing to learn about professional dress or public speaking in a classroom, it is another thing entirely to practice and demonstrate those skills in a large public venue, surrounded by potential employers and college partners.
