Networking at Recruiting Events

Navigating Networking Events

Networking can happen anywhere, anytime - on the airplane on your way home or at more formal networking events. Examples of formal networking events include:

  • Career fairs
  • Conferences
  • Dinners (e.g., honors banquet, company business dinners)
  • Employer and/or speaker presentations
  • Alumni events
  • Informational interviews

Formal networking events allow you more time for planning and preparation in order for you to get the most out of these events. Review the steps below to get started on planning, preparing, and navigating different networking events. If you would like help preparing for an upcoming event, feel free to make an appointment with a career advisor in The Career Center by contacting us at 410-617-2232.
