CSTEP, McNair Students Participate in Career Symposium

Students in St. Lawrence University's Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) and McNair Scholars Program participated in the 18th Annual Career Exploration Symposium and Celebration Dinner at the State University of New York at Canton on Feb. 1.
The symposium is an annual event held by the Northern New York CSTEP and STEP network which consists of Clarkson University, SUNY Canton, SUNY Potsdam, and St. Lawrence University. Students had the opportunity to participate in career exploration workshops and network with professionals in a range of fields, including engineering, law, medicine and public health as well as in math and science education. The celebration dinner included remarks from each of the university's outstanding seniors. History major Matthew Dudley '14 represented St. Lawrence and shared how CSTEP has supported him throughout his undergraduate career.
The day concluded with a presentation from Daniel Seddiqui, author of 50 Jobs in 50 States in 50 Weeks. Seddiqui, who has been featured in USA Today and on CNN, talked about his quest to travel across the United States and work in jobs that reflected the culture and economy of each state. Seddiqui encouraged students to challenge themselves and be persistent as they pursue their career goals.
