MHCI+D Career Conference

On June 21, 2017, we hosted a conference where industry and students met, got to know each other, interviewed, and networked. Not a traditional career fair with employers at tables and students in long lines, the MHCI+D Career Conference is on a more intimate scale with opportunities for both scheduled and spontaneous interactions. Here is the lunch-time panel:
