    AMA’s Career Prep Conferences help them to assimilate into the business world by gaining a practical understanding of corporate mindsets and cultures. These impactful one-day events offer skills, knowledge and hands-on practice to guide them in working effectively in a business environment and building credibility. They’ll have opportunities to network and make new professional connections, learn from expert program leaders, develop their personal brand, and discover how to communicate in ways that support and are accepted by today’s organizations.


    Emerging college graduates and early career professionals looking to build their network and successfully prepare for their careers.
