UVA Alumni Holiday Online Networking
December 14, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Connect with UVA alumni during lunch! Spread a little holiday cheer from your home or office, on your smartphone or tablet. Share your experiences, exchange career tips and build your professional network!
The event is divided into six industry groups (or “booths”):
• Arts, Entertainment, Media, Marketing & PR
• Business, Finance & Economics
• Education, Social & Community Services
• Health Sciences, Nursing, Medicine & Public Health
• Public Policy, Government & Law
• Science, Technology & Engineering
Once in a booth, you will be paired with fellow alums for text-based chats (up to 10 minutes long) that will allow you to make a connection, exchange contact information and end the hour with several new connections you didn’t have before. After the chats, add your new contacts to your network by connecting on LinkedIn or following up via email. A transcript of your conversations will be saved for you to access after each event, so you can look back at your chat history, review your notes, gather contact information and follow up!
