UCS offers 6-8 different Networking Nights or Meet Ups each year. These programs give students an opportunity to meet and mingle with working professionals. Each event has a theme, usually based on a specific industry or field such as "communications careers," "green/sustainable careers," "non-profit careers" or "careers for social good." Check the UCS Events schedule on Handshake for the current slate of offerings - these are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. A helpful tip sheet is below for your use.
Students should also consider other options for networking, which can include professional group or association meetings, Chambers of Commerce groups, and more generalized industry or geographically-oriented networking events. See the Related Links for examples of local networking events and organizations.
