Career Day is a full day of networking and interviews.  Our mission is to help candidates get employment opportunities to further their career goals and, at the same time, help employers find their next Star to add value to their firm.  There is no better opportunity for you to get significant face time with numerous prospective employers/employees, network with the FPA DFW chapter members, and further the profession’s brightest minds.  There are many chances throughout the day for networking and ad hoc interviews.
