What  is  HBCU  CDM?

The HBCU CDM mission is to inform, educate, and prepare students from HBCUs about corporate America as they transition into the workforce. The conference has remained free for students to attend, and as a result, it has strengthened the leadership and professional skills of thousands of HBCU graduates. The HBCU CDM teaches students how to prepare for professional opportunities and greater productivity after graduation.

This conference is like no other, it covers three days and is comprised of five functions: 1) town hall meetings, 2) workshops/plenary sessions, 3) oral competition, 4) meet and greet sessions, and 5) 1:3 employer-student matchmaking sessions, or the Fields of Interest Career Fair. Since the inception of the HBCU Career Development Marketplace, over 5,000 HBCU students from 40+ HBCUs and 14 states have participated in this inspirational conference. Last year, we had 20% of the students that participated receive interest in either an internship, job opportunity, or both.
