Career Development Conference (CDC)

The exclamation point on a great year

The Career Development Conference, or CDC, is held annually in spring and celebrates the accomplishments of JMG seniors as they get ready to graduate from high school and take the next step into post-secondary education or careers.

During this event, more than 500 seniors and selected juniors from across the state gather at a centrally located conference facility to take part in competitions that measure their skills in interviewing, job preparedness, team work, communications, and leadership.

They also have a chance to showcase their accomplishments over the past year in the Career Association Marketplace, to win educational scholarships and to network with professionals from Maine's business and college community in the Career and College Expo.

The next Career Development Conference will be held on March 27, 2018, at Thomas College in Waterville. If you are interested in volunteering as a competition judge, please contact JMG's central office at [email protected] or call 620-7180.
