7:00 PM - Speed Networking Event
Location: Superior, Michigan, and Ontario Rooms, University Center
Learn tips on networking from NMU's Career Services and then put those skills into practice with NMU alumni from diverse professional backgrounds. Students will talk with alumni in "speed" rounds of 3 minutes then rotate to the next available alumnus/a. During each round, students will practice introducing themselves while learning about the other's profession. Time is provided in the end to discuss the experience, share advice on networking and for more conversation. Speed Networking simulates the short window of opportunity many find themselves in when realizing the chance to make a career connection, such as in an elevator or at a conference.
Attendance is limited, and you are required to RSVP to reserve your spot. Learn more and RSVP by visiting the Wildcats for Life Facebook page or email wfl@nmu.edu.

We HIGHLY recommend attending these events. The speed networking event is especially helpful if you are attending the job fair, as it will help you to learn skills needed to quickly make connections with employers.
