AppState students have long expressed an interest in making their impact on the three E’s of sustainability - Environment, Economy, and Equity. In this interactive career conference, students will have the opportunity to meet with and hear from professionals working in government, corporate, and non-profit sectors to learn more about how they got started, the challenges they faced, and learn what types of organizations and professional roles are out there - from government/NGOs to for-profit, relatable, valuable career advice from those who've gone before you.

Career opportunities in these industry sectors are abundant, and the reality is, you CAN make a living while making a difference.
