  • Career Workshop Series: Speed Networking

    "Speed" Networking/Mock Interviewing Session

    Tuesday, March 28, 2017


    University Hall, rooms 312 & 313

    If you had one short window of opportunity to tell someone about yourself in order to land your dream job, what would you say? What is your story? Think about what has shaped you to be the person that you are - your adversities, accomplishments, or passions. Give yourself some time to think about it and come prepared to this networking session with a short narrative about yourself that is approximately 1-2 minutes. 

    Since one critical component to landing the job you’re looking for is acquiring the ability to network and to make connections, we would like to help you get more comfortable with the process.  This HSS Networking/Mock Interviewing Session gives you a chance to practice how to connect to others in the professional world. Students will become familiar with introducing themselves, sharing their story, and discovering other ways to relate and "break the ice" while practicing with faculty and alumni volunteers over pizza. Relax! This workshop is casual, so there's no need to get dressed up. 

    Location: Univ. Hall 312/13
