HACU Student Track

For Students:

The HACU conference annually attracts hundreds of corporate, federal, and non-profit employers along with colleges and universities, all eager to talk to undergraduate students. A special Student Track program is specifically designed for undergraduate students. In addition Student Track serves as a forum for students to ask questions about careers and career development.
