Conference Community Partner Day

One of the highlights of the 3 day conference is our off-site visit with a Bay Area business. PCF rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors have an opportunity to hear from employees on what it is like to work in that industry and company environment. 

The day includes a series of career focused work sessions led by employee volunteers sharing their professional insights to help scholars prepare for their transition into the workforce.
