The Career Center is hosting our annual speed-networking event, Connect@Wes on-campus on Friday, April 1st. This event is designed to match students with industry professionals across a number of fields and to give students the opportunity to learn how to network professionally and practice their personal pitches.
I’m wondering if you can pass the event registration information on to any students you think may be interested in participating. Students need to register here www.myinterfase.com/wesleyan/event_view.aspx?token=sEHYD4skKKBpeHLUEEmR+w%3d%3d by Sunday, March 6th at 11:59. Students can reach out to me directly if they have questions or need help registering—firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your help spreading the word about this exciting career development opportunity!
Connect @WES: Creating Connections is a networking exercise and event for Wesleyan students of all class years and interests. Register to participate and meet with Expert Advisors (recruiters and hiring managers as well as alumni and parent volunteers) for brief, one-on-one sessions. By registering you are automatically accepted into the program and you will receive an email confirmation once the deadline has passed.
You should be prepared to answer the networking/interview question, “So, tell me about yourself,” in about 5 minutes. Expert Advisors will then use their experience and expertise to critique what they have heard. When the bell rings, you’ll move on to meet your next advisor. This structured speed-networking event will allow you to meet a few advisors in a short period of time and practice your “presentation”. Whether you’re preparing for interviews or internships, this event will help you to polish your networking skills!
