Our UCF KAPM would love to share how students have incredible opportunities for events and activities outside of main campus and our regular/traditional workshops and talks. They get to network with incredible employers and organizations to explore project management roles as well as the experience of managing these huge events, which are definitely projects! They also have a lot of fun!!!
Two KAPM members shared their thoughts on attending the PMI Holiday Gala. Here is what they had to say,
