Drexel alumni and students are invited to participate in the 7th Annual Campus to Career Student-Alumni Networking Night, where a panel of Drexel alumni professionals will answer questions, provide networking opportunities, and offer advice to current Drexel students.
Topics will include, but are not limited to:
• After College Budget and Finance
• How to Use Your Student Leadership and Campus Involvement Experience
to Gain an Edge in the Job Market
• Behavioral Techniques of Job Interviews and Office Environments
• Salary Negotiation
• Résumé Writing/Critiquing
• The “1st 90 Days” of Your New Job
More Details on the Program's Format:
The event will begin at 6 p.m. with light refreshments and food. At 6:30 p.m., the panelists and moderator will answer questions that the attendees have in regards to some specific topics. Following the formal Q&A discussion, the students and alumni panelists will be divided into groups according to profession or field of study, giving students an opportunity to ask questions and network with alumni who are working in their desired field, such as business, engineering, healthcare, etc. After these "breakout sessions" revolving around specific fields or industries, students will be able to have their résumé critiqued by experienced alumni and staff. With both the formal panel discussion and the breakout discussions, students will be better prepared for co-op and seniors will learn more about their post-college career and networking opportunities, as well as learn some valuable insight about life after graduation from alumni who have recent experience outside of Drexel. The panelists and alumni in attendance will have the opportunity to network with current students before and after the panel discussion. All alumni are also encouraged to attend to share their Drexel experiences with students, as well as meet and connect with other alumni in attendance.
*This "CEO LEAD Certified" event is part of the Drexel Senior Experience and is sponsored by the Drexel University Alumni Association, the Drexel University Student Alumni Association, and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, with support from the Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, and Delta Zeta Sorority.
