Future Plans – More Than a College Fair

By Sean Brown | January 21, 2013

Photo by Jessica MacCall New to SXSWedu 2013, the Future Plans College & Career Fair presents an opportunity to students from Central Texas to visit the Austin Convention Center and meet with colleges, universities, trade schools and employers from around the nation. We think the right way to maximize the Future Plans experience is to approach the college and career fair from the student’s perspective.

Additionally, Future Plans will host two speaker stages focused individually on the college and career process, covering topics from admissions and financial aid to employment trends and resume drafting. College and career paths vary from student to student, and we hope to encourage them to consider the best options for their individual needs. That's our goal for Future Plans – to empower students to make thoughtful decisions.
