Alumni and Professional Career Panel
One of the best ways for students to learn what a job is really like (the good, the bad, and the ugly) is to speak with someone who works in that job everyday. Fortunately, several UE alumni have volunteered to share their professional career path and experiences with current students. Partners in the Evansville Experience (PIEE) offers opportunities for alumni, employers, parents and friends of the University to become involved. If you or your students are interested in coordinating a career professional panel, please contact us via email!
