LAUP Career Fair & Aggie Workshop
Connect with potential employers while you’re still a student.
Every year LAUP students plan and host events to give students opportunities to network with industry professionals. Register for the Career Fair or Aggie Workshop, or both!
Career Fair: March 4, 2021
Aggie Workshop: April 9, 2021
LAUP’s Career Fair is a rewarding experience for students and employers. In the morning, students can visit booths for various firms. In the afternoon, firms hold one-on-one interviews with students they think might be a good fit with their team. This networking event connects employers with fresh talent and leads to job placement after graduation.
Make a great first impression by showing your work well. A board of professors and industry professionals are available to review and critique your portfolio. Students have the opportunity to make changes before meeting with firms at the career fair.
Our next faculty and industry professional portfolio reviews are scheduled for November 3, 2021.
Networking isn’t all about interviews. The Aggie Workshop brings together industry professionals, faculty and students to address real problems. Our discussions are guided by a keynote speaker and a panel of thought leaders. A collaborative charrette follows where participants break off into groups to form solutions to the topic at hand.
Aggie Workshop is free for students and faculty. Registration includes Trivia Night, Lectures, Napkin Session, and Closing Reception.
Anthropocene: A Societal Threshold
Our 2021 Aggie Workshop will respond to the culmination of societal changes at the forefront of our industry: climate crisis, pandemic-related planning, and designing for equity. We are reaching an ecological threshold, a point where the disturbances we’re experiencing are rapidly changing our environment. Once the threshold is crossed, there is no return to our previous inherent resilience.
Diana Fernandez, ASLA, PLA, an ASLA Emerging Professional Medalist and part of the 2019–2020 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership, will provide the keynote lecture.
Attend as a Professional
Industry professionals make these events worthwhile. We encourage firms and organizations to participate in both the LAUP Career Fair and Aggie Workshop.
