***Employer Conversations: Networking (Online & In-Person)***

Thursday, November 15th, 2012, 4:30-6:30pm, Gowen 201

One of the best ways to succeed in a tough job market? Knowing how to effectively network. You don’t want to miss this unique opportunity to hear direct from employers what works, what doesn’t, and what to definitely avoid (Facebook slip-ups included!). We’ll offer a moderated panel (employers participating noted below) as well as an open question & answer period, and a post-panel networking opportunity, to give you the chance to interact one-on-one with our panelists. You’ll leave the session feeling more confident and informed about networking, and your ability to put your best foot forward in-person and online – whether traditional networking through the phone, email or face-to-face; or the many opportunities available through the internet, from LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and company websites. Brought to you by the Career Center. Open to all students and alumni. No pre-registration needed. Students usually like these types of events because they are informative, fun, practical, encouraging and helpful. Please join us!
