Career Services Advisory Committee

The Career Services Advisory Committee is a student organization designed to develop events to enrich the student body's career awareness. Since its inception in May 2009, the CSAC has worked with the student body to identify job-related skills in need of development, and to conduct career workshops to help meet those needs. Recent events included a panel discussion on interviewing strategies, a "Job Talk" workshop, and a series of career talks from PRGS alumni representing the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
