We've re-imagined our best practices sessions to bring you a series of short presentations that are the perfect excuse to take an afternoon break and learn from our peers.
June 8 @ 2pm | Creating a Micro Networking Event with Big Results
Stacey Moulton, Associate Director, Marketing & Communications, Providence College Center for Career Education & Professional Development
Traditional Networking Nights are valuable, and can offer students opportunities to meet many alumni from a variety of careers fields. But what if a student knows the career field they want, and attend an event to find only 1 or 2 alumni from that field?
At Providence College we planned a networking event with that issue in mind, and launched our Careers In... event. The Careers In... event focuses on one field and drills down to different jobs within an area. Our signature event, Careers In...Science provides student who want to work in healthcare, but aren't sure what that means, the chance to speak with 10-12 alumni with a different career in the same field. During the event students are able to participate in speed networking rounds, then stay longer if they wish to follow up with a particular speaker.
