In addition to fairs and career panels, there are a variety of opportunities to make connections at events hosted throughout the year. Networking events provide you with an opportunity to learn about different careers, the current job market, and the transition from school to work from a professional currently working in the field (i.e. an employer and/or alumni).
What to Expect
The format is generally set up as a "speed networking" session where you will be seated at a table with a professional and approximately 5 other students. After quick introductions, the professional will share their career story and answer any questions you and the other students might have. Every 15 minutes, another professional will be assigned to your table for a total of 4 rotations. This is followed by an open reception where you can meet all the professionals, network and speak with them one-on-one.
Register for these events and others via the Career Learning Network.
