Unlimited Opportunities Events

Unlimited Opportunities Events

Students outside on Creighton campus

February 15 - 25, 2022

Creighton University College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with the Career Center, hosts a multi-night event, “Career Week: Unlimited Opportunities!” These events will feature Arts and Sciences alumni who will speak about a variety of career opportunities and the value of a liberal arts education. The best way to learn about internships, careers, and/or graduate or professional school is to talk to professionals in a variety of fields.

Career Week is beneficial for all students! This includes students who are undecided and may be determining their major or different careers, sophomores and juniors considering internships, seniors seeking jobs, and any student who may be considering graduate or professional school. Each year students obtain internships and full-time employment as a result of attending Career Week.
