LAUNCH Professional Development Series

Sometimes the best career advice comes from another student. LAUNCH is a series of professional development and career readiness presentations in which fellow students share in-depth knowledge about career planning — from writing a remarkable resume to acing an interview.

Attend at least six LAUNCH sessions and you’ll receive a professional development certificate and a meal and t-shirt during our LAUNCH celebration.

If a LAUNCH session is canceled due to unforeseen events, will it be rescheduled?

Yes — please see the LAUNCH page link, and scroll to the bottom of the list.

The weather is terrible. Is LAUNCH still being held today?

If there’s inclement weather, LAUNCH will follow NC State University policy, i.e., if classes are canceled, so is LAUNCH.

I signed up for Monday but can’t make it. Do I still need to sign up for Tuesday?

Yes. Each LAUNCH program is its own separate event. You need to sign up for each one individually.

The event is full. What should I do?

Please sign up for the waiting list instead of just showing up. This will help us prepare extra seating if needed and possible.
