Current Opportunities

We are constantly contacted by companies with information about job postings, opportunities, conferences, on-campus events, etc. and it would be impossible to post them all on social media or include them in the weekly email. So we have created a Current Opportunities PowerPoint to consolidate the information and make sure that it is reaching all our members!
