The Career Roundtable, green circles

CVAD Foundations and UNT Career Center present the Career Roundtable

The Career Roundtable provides CVAD students a forum to discuss and discover career opportunities during the Career Roundtable events presented by CVAD Foundations and UNT Career Center staff members. Join us to discover career opportunities in visual arts, design, museum studies, art education, art history, and other fields — that may or may not relate to art and design.

The events, conducted via Zoom video communications software, are opportunities to help students prepare for career possibilities and to connect with mentors.

For more information, contact Binod Shrestha, director, CVAD Foundations, or Marcy Bishop-Lilley, career development coach, UNT Career Center.

To sign up for a mentor in your career field, visit the Mean Green Mentors website.
