Career Networking Reception

Despite a snow cancellation and change of date for the event, our alumni showed wonderful support for students by coming out to the second annual Student-Alumni Career Networking Reception. More than 50 alumni came to speak with students about what their career field is like and give pointers on how to maneuver through the job market. This opportunity is especially important for students who are facing a tough job market as they leave college. There were some great connections made, and good advice handed out. One freshman met with an alum in the graphic-design field and was able to secure a part-time job. A senior majoring in political science has started a conversation with an alum, which may lead to an internship and then a future job opportunity in public affairs. This year’s event will be held in the fall, November 11, so please come out to help us make even more success stories.
