The Scarlet C-Suite Program is a comprehensive program offered by Career Services. The purpose of the program is to elevate students’ career readiness and success, during and beyond Illinois Tech. It consists of six pillars, including 10 professional development workshops, career coaching, volunteer and project experience, finalized career profiles, and a concluding questionnaire.
