Pacific Central & Mountain Central Event: Reno Industry Tour & Recruiting Summit

There is still time to register for the Reno Industry Tour & Recruiting Summit on August 1-2! Reno has become the #1 city of its size in job growth, and we've put together a 2-day summit to showcase some of the growing industries, employment opportunities, and internships for college students and graduates.


Each location we are visiting will be focusing on their employment and internship opportunities for students and graduates across majors. Industries highlighted on tours include technology, advanced manufacturing, logistics, customer service, biotech, healthcare, and engineering. The Happy Hour and dinner will feature additional employers who we were not able to fit into the tour schedule.


Dates: Thursday and Friday, August 1st & 2nd
