To help students develop an understanding of the importance of being a professional and the impact their actions have on the perceptions of them as employees. A group of employers will be invited to participate as a panel in this session to present their own personal brand statements and to engage in discussions of professionalism in the work environment. This session will be open to all MTSU students. We will utilize the ePortfolio to demonstrate how appropriate artifacts can build a personal brand and make a polished, professional impression on an employer. Food and beverages will be available.
