The Class to Career Conference (C2C) is a new program hosted by the AU Career Center.

Our highly successful first conference was held January 9-12, 2017 with 29 students, 12 speakers, 7 mock interviewers, and four alumni panelists. Most of the speakers and interviewers were alumni or faculty members. For creating the Class to Career Conference, the C2C team won the 2017 Innovation and Change Staff Performance Award.

The week included 6 site visits to top employers in DC: Smithsonian, Voice of America, The Advisory Board Company, Strathmore (performing arts center), National Institutes of Health, and WAMU 88.5 (an NPR station) and concluded with an etiquette dinner hosted by a leading business etiquette coach.
