Each year in the spring, the Guidance and Counseling Department welcomes several professionals to MSM to discuss their careers. Students have the benefit of hearing first-hand information about what it’s like to work in a particular field. Students are encouraged to attend more than one visit, gaining exposure to information about more than one career area.
