Not just professionals… nearly half of ALPFA Convention attendees are students just like you. But it’s not too crowed to stand out and be heard. Spend quality time with professionals, mentors, employers, and hiring managers. People who are where you want to be.

There are more than 4,000 colleges and universities in the Unites States. Whether you’re at one of those “Top 100” schools or not, you can and will be seen and heard at ALPFA Convention.

Meet students who have successfully used the opportunity not just to find a job, but to accelerate their careers. Meet students like Ana Agudelo, who went from crowded career fairs at Rutgers to quality time with a Dell recruiter at the ALPFA Convention to a Senior Associate in Dell’s Premier Finance 2-yr training program. Now she’s attending ALPFA Convention as a recruiter for the very same program, looking for top talent.

It’s such a powerful feeling to know someone has your back. It’s one big powerful family supporting each other.”
