Let's do it again! Speed Networking 2010

So.... you have heard of speed dating and speed skating and speed racer and speedy gonzalez. And honestly you have probably heard of Speed Networking too; but have you actually done it?

Have you actually walked into a room filled with bigwigs? Rubbed elbows with the fine alumni of Marquette? Made connections that will help you in your future career?

Well why not? You are officially invited to Speed Networking 2010!

CIRCLES: Speed Networking with Alumni- registration required
Tuesday, February 23, 2010 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Wisconsin Club

This student/alumni program will include one-on-one networking with alumni and employers during a 30-minute speed networking. We will attempt to match students with professionals by industry.

If this sounds terrifying to you, no worries, I will walk you through the how-tos. It's really one-on-one so no talking TO CROWDS of people.
You gotta learn how to do it SOMETIME, why not now?

A Busy February Ahead!

Happy (belated) New Year's everybody! We hope all of you had a great break and the start of the new semester is going well.

We here at Career Services have been busy over the course of the last month working to set up numerous helpful events to make the job or internship process that much easier for you. February may be a short month, but you can be sure that there will be no shortage of events for you to attend! We hope to see and help you all February (and every other month after)!

Wednesday Feb 3rd: Mock Interview Day

Looking to improve your interviewing skills before the big job or internship interview? Schedule a 30 minute mock interview with employers that regularly recruit Marquette students. What better way to find out how prepared you really are? Sign-ups are open now, so stop by our office in Holthusen Hall or give us a call at 288-7423 to reserve your spot. Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Monday, Feb 8th: Career Fair Prep Workshop (5-7pm)

Learn everything you need to know about successfully navigating a career fair from a recruiter. Hear about what recruiters look for, how to approach them, proper follow-up, and so much more. Bring your resume too and receive a critique from our staff while the session is underway. No reservation required, just stop by AMU 227. Did we mention there will be free food too?

Thursday, Feb 18th: Workforce Career Fair (4-8pm)

Looking for a job or internship? Come by our annual spring career fair in the AMU Ballrooms and meet prospective employers that want to meet you. Currently there are over 100 organizations registered, with more signing up each week. Many of these organizations will also be interviewing on campus later in the semester, so make that positive first impression.

Tuesday, Feb 23rd: Speed Networking with Alumni (5:30-7:30pm)

Get the opportunity to meet up to 50 Marquette alumni in one evening! Our speed networking events, this time held at the Wisconsin Club, allow students to get to know alumni who are looking to help you in your career. Space will be limited, so keep an eye out for registration announcements in the near future.
