Helpful Tips for Getting the Most out of a Conference
Attending conferences can be a great way to learn new skills and support your professional development, but it's not as easy as just showing up. From what to pack to how to spend downtime, there's preparation and strategy involved in getting the most out of these events. Here is some of the best advice from around the web on attending conferences the right way.
For over 20 years Prospanica Chicago has offered our signature program known as the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) to promote business education among Hispanic students. SEP is a four-week program in July targeting high-performing, first-generation Latino students who show commitment to learning about college and career success. SEP focuses on inspiring our youth to matriculate into college and to provide them access to working professionals they may not otherwise have access to. SEP is 100 percent subsidized for every student. Over 20 high schools were contacted both in the city of Chicago and neighboring suburbs, and a total of 100 applications were received. Prospanica’s Education Committee and board members reviewed and interviewed students for this year’s program. In all, 30 super-star students were selected from various Chicago public schools and neighboring suburbs.
