Career Fair and Professional Development Workshop

The 2018 Department of Landscape Architecture Professional Development (PD) Workshops and Career Fair will take place at the Morton Arboretum, Lisle, IL, on Friday, March 9.

Two Professional Development Workshops will be offered from 9:00 AM to Noon at the Education Center.  Each session will be 90 minutes long and will provide 1.5 PD hours (3.0 hours total). 

The Career Fair will be held from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Morton Arboretum's Education Center. BLA and MLA students will arrive between 12:00 noon and 1:00 PM.  They will bring copies of their resum├ęs and portfolios (also available online) and will meet with practitioners between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Some students will be seeking internships, others full-time positions.

This year, from 2:00pm - 3:30pm, we are adding a Prospective Student Information Session for students who have been admitted to the U of I Landscape Architecture program or who are interested in entering the program.

A Reception for firms, students, alumni, and faculty will follow from 4:30PM to 6:00PM. This will be an opportunity to connect informally with alumni, current students, future students and other LA colleagues.

The fee for the PD Workshops is $40.  The fee for the Career Fair is $50.  All are invited to the Reception. There is no charge for parking.
