UVA Alumni Industry Networking – Business, Finance & Economics Professionals
April 12, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for an Online Networking Event
Connect with UVA alumni in the fields of Business, Finance, and Economics! Share your experiences, exchange career tips and build your professional network with alumni from around the country and the world.
It’s free, it’s only an hour, and it’s fun!
How it Works:
Online networking enables you to speed-network from wherever you are. You can sign in from your home or office, on your smartphone or tablet. When registering for the event, you will be asked to answer a few questions, such as what advice you can provide for this event and what advice you are seeking.
The event is divided into five groups (or “booths”) based on experience, plus one for general UVA discussion:
• Recent Grads
• Rising Professionals
• Established Professionals
• Career Changers – Giving and Getting Advice
• Thinking about Retirement
• Share UVA Memories
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!
To prepare, read our Online Networking Tips and watch this brief video on how to use the Brazen Careerist application.
