Following his address will be break-out sessions with panels of industry experts from the fields of communication and creative media, education and human studies, game design, information technology, and business who will speak to students about various career options and industry trends.

As part of the CCM Division’s break-out session, panelists include Bill Carter, Partner at Fuse; Bess O’Brien, local filmmaker / Kingdom County Productions; Lloyd Komesar, chair of the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival; and Lance Jensen, chief creative officer at Hill Holiday.  CCM Dean Paula Willoquet-Maricondi will serve as the moderator.

For the first time, Champlain College’s Career Collaborative Office is presenting a new design to the previously formatted career day. “This year we have added a professional development element and panel discussions to the more traditional internship and job fair to reflect our new Champlain Connect partnership program with employers. The organizations that signed up to speak on these panels represent key members of our community, alumni, and parents,” explained Tanja Hinterstoisser, director of the Career Collaborative.

Free and open to the public, the Career Conference will kick off at 10:30 a.m. with a welcome by Hinterstoisser in the Champlain Room. Directly following the panel will be the traditional Fall Career Fair in Argosy Gym from 1:30 p.m. – 5 p.m. where attendees can expect to meet local, regional and national employers to talk about internships, jobs and other networking opportunities.  – Faith Frith ‘ 19 and Melinda Lathrop ’17
