    Career Champions Symposium

    Career Champions

    The University of South Carolina Career Center is excited to host its first ever Career Champions Symposium.  Developed from the award-winning Career Champions program, this symposium is designed to help participants scale career information while building or enhancing their campus' career ecosystem with faculty, staff, and peer leaders.

    Career Champions Symposium: Postponed

    The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and guests is a top priority at the University of South Carolina. In an effort to be proactive with the growing cases of COVID-19 we have decided to postpone the Career Champions Symposium. We are very excited to still host our event and therefore we will be looking for a date in the next few months as we continue to monitor COVID-19.
