The Gordon College Calling and Career Conference seeks to advance your preparation for a life of faithful work, worship, and service through:
Beginning in your second year, you are invited to participate in the Calling & Career conference to explore God’s calling in your life, translate your unique strengths and experiences to the world of work, meet alumni in various fields, develop your resumé, polish networking and interview skills, and discern next steps in your professional journeys.
Explore vocation and calling
Our keynote speaker for Fall 2019 is Dr. Kelly Madden, executive director of the Boston Fellows, a nine-month graduate program that helps professionals approach their careers holistically. Dr. Madden will help us explore vocation and calling as we seek to reorient our lives to God's redemptive purposes in the world.
Alumni in the World of Work
Engage with Gordon alumni from a variety of fields during the conference! Hear from industry panels where alumni will share their expertise and career advice, and assist you with interview and networking skills.

At the conference, you will have the opportunity to dig deeper in exploring how your strengths can be used in future careers.
