From the Super Bowl to Carnival, February has been an exciting month for Loyola students. After a month full of endless reasons to celebrate, many seniors are feeling overwhelmed and behind in their job search preparations. The Career Development Center is here to help seniors get back on track with EMPLOY the PACK: A Conference for Emerging Professionals on Saturday, March 16th. Through two keynote addresses and a series of small group breakout sessions, this conference will give seniors, graduate students, and young alumni the knowledge and resources necessary to conquer the job search process.

It’s no secret that seniors will face a challenging job market. Despite this fact, EMPLOY the PACK: A Conference for Emerging Professionals will seek to inspire attendees to make their dream job a reality. In his closing keynote address – Making a Difference While Making a Living – Scott Beale will address this topic directly and provide concrete steps for translating your calling into a successful and meaningful career.

Scott Beale is a former U.S. diplomat and the founder and CEO of Atlas Service Corps (@atlascorps), an international network of nonprofit leaders that seeks to address critical social issues by strengthening organizations and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship. Sometimes referred to as a “reverse Peace Corps,” Atlas Service Corps has been heralded as “best practice” in international exchange by the Brookings Institution and was featured in the Washington Post as a model social entrepreneurship program.

Mr. Beale is also a recognized expert on the Millennial Generation and accomplished author of “Millennial Manifesto: A Youth Activist Handbook.” Furthermore, he was the founder of which has since grown into, the largest nonpartisan political community for young people in the country. As a renowned professional and public speaker who has inspired countless young professionals to become agents of social change with his personal experiences on activism, volunteerism, leadership, and social innovation, we hope that he will embolden Loyola students to follow their passions and create the change they seek in the world.
