Pitt Business Career Development Conference

The 2016 Pitt Business Career Development Conference is scheduled for September 23, 2016 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.

There are a record 75 recruiting organizations participating, and they are recruiting for jobs and internships across every single major. At the conference, there will be morning panel discussions hosted by the companies, a networking lunch with the companies, and an afternoon career fair with the companies.  Our keynote speaker is Caitlin McLaughlin, senior vice president and director of total rewards and talent acquisition for The PNC Financial Services Group. 

At Pitt Business, we take students on a journey from the classroom, to the city, to the world, and the career conference is an important step on that journey.
