OUT For Work - Career Conference for LGBT and allied students

A fantastic opportunity for University of Maryland students thinking about jobs, future careers, and workplace issues, or just wanting to get to meet other lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and allies from around the country, and see some great speakers and workshops. The career themes in this conference focus on the specific needs and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students, as well as allies, may have with regards to career seeking and the workplace.

OUT For Work Career Fair and Conference 2010

Saturday & Sunday, September 25 & 26

Washington, D.C.

Event Details:

FREE registration ends Wednesday, September 15.

Don't miss the 6th Annual Out For Work Career Conference scheduled for September 25th-26th at the Washington Plaza Hotel in Washington D.C. The Conference will feature great new workshops and guest speakers, including Fashion Guru Tim Gunn, Amanda Simpson, President Obama's Trans Appointee, Journalist Jonathan Capehart and more.

The University Career Center and the President's Promise and The Office of LGBT Equity are proud to announce that we will once again partner with Out For Work to sponsor University of Maryland students to attend the conference. As a partner, the University of Maryland has a limited number of spaces for students to participate FREE OF CHARGE. This includes conference materials and meals. The normal fee for current undergraduate and graduate students is $45.

NO SHOW POLICY: This event is FREE to participate, however; since space is limited, and the co-sponsoring departments are paying to sponsor each participant slot, if you fail to check-in BOTH days at the conference we will have to charge your student account $45 (cost of meals and registration).

Please register using BOTH the University Career Center site and (after filling the form there) at the Out for Work website (where you will be redirected upon completing the university form).
