We will be hosting our first ever speed networking event for our current students and younger alumni.
Date: Wednesday 14 October
Time: 6 - 8pm
Venue: Boardrooms, St George’s, University of London
The event will follow the same format as speed dating, with small groups of students and younger alumni spending a short time with each alumnus to ask questions about their careers and current roles. You speak to the groups for 10 minutes telling them about your career and answering their questions. After 10 minutes, you are joined by a new group. Students will be given networking tips beforehand to ensure both the students and yourself get the most from the event.
We are looking for alumni who graduated before 2005 who wish to share their experiences since graduation.
The event will be an exciting opportunity for you to share your successes and offer your invaluable advice about applying for jobs and what is needed to do to stand out the job market. Joining the Speed Networking event as a mentor is also a great way to meet fellow career-minded alumni and do some professional peer-to-peer alumni networking.
The evening will finish with an informal wine and buffet reception. There will also be an opportunity for students to pick up on previous conversations you may have started and ask any further questions.
If you graduated in 2005 or before then you can sign up as a participant and take advantage of the invaluable advice of our older alumni as well as practicing your networking skills.
