In regard to fields of work that are being presented would it be appropriate for a third year college student who's working on their degree to attend? I'm working on my bachelor degree in sociology and my minor in human services and would be potentially looking for an employer that would accept someone out of college in May of 2020 with no experience in the field yet.
