Welcome to the 2017 Santa Barbara Career Symposium! This year’s event will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017, in Santa Barbara on the beautiful Westmont College campus in Founders’ Dining Room from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. We look forward to a time of dynamic learning and networking.
Thanks to generous funding from Westmont College, the event will be FREE to attendees. The event includes lunch. (First thing in the morning, coffee and/or breakfast is available for purchase in the Dining Commons adjacent to our location.)
The Santa Barbara Career Symposium (SBCS) originated at UCSB in the early 1980s and was revived in 2003 by a consortium of staff from the UCSB, SBCC, and Westmont College career centers. This event provides career/counseling professionals and critical partners the opportunity to become informed about career trends, to share best practices and challenges, and to address current issues dealing with career development, Career Technical Education (CTE), and relevant career resources.
