Career Exploration Nights (CEN)

Throughout the year, Career Exploration and Success offers Career Exploration Nights (CEN) for each career cluster. CENs provide students an opportunity to ask recent alumni questions about their career paths from the safety of a group of peers.  

Each event begins with refreshments and an introductory training session before transitioning into a larger room where students sit at tables designated by occupations and have a discussion led by recent alumni. This event is an excellent opportunity to explore various career paths in a more informal environment.

TOP REASONS TO ATTEND:

  • Each event counts as a #RutgersWorks Free Tuition Challenge stamp. Attend more than one event to receive multiple stamps.
  • Free and open to all students.
  • Enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres.
  • It’s ideal for first-year students who are still deciding on a future career path or even seniors interested in networking with alumni.
  • Learn from alumni what it is like to work in various fields. These events are an excellent opportunity to explore in a friendly and informal environment.
  • Attire is "come as you are." We do not require students to dress up for Career Exploration Night events. Casual attire is fine!
  • Meet an industry-centric career advisor and develop relationships with your fellow peers.
  • You can attend more than one! There is no reason you can't explore different career paths that may interest you.
  • Start growing your network and increase your chances of success!
