Career Services Institute 2019 Remaining Human: Scaffolding Career Development in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Join us for a day of exploring and developing strategies at the low-cost of $199, $169 for MPACE members.

As artificial intelligence and machine learning become an integral part of the job search, the landscape of career services is evolving faster than ever before. Technology advancements are incrementally defining our realities and capacity every day. Many of our personal, interpersonal, social, and professional functions are being guided, augmented, anticipated, and even executed for us. It is critical that career centers begin to tap into technological innovation to maximize partnerships with vendors, students, and employers alike. This year’s Career Services Institute will tackle the challenges and opportunities presented by artificial intelligence in the field.

Keynote Speaker:

Chris Brooks
