MAC CON: Michigan Alumni Career Conference

MAC CON is the first step toward a truly fulfilling career. Over the course of a single day, we take a journey of self-discovery to laying out a roadmap of success. Our conference typically begins with a development workshop followed by guided roundtable conversations with career experts and interactive panel discussions. The big day always concludes with a networking mixer with representatives of companies and organizations actively looking to hire.

We’re taking this show on the road with speaker events, workshops, and much more to cities like Detroit and Grand Rapids. Keep an eye out for the next Michigan Alumni Career Conference for the coming year.
