Speed Networking - New Event at Anderson's Career Week April 19 - 22

April 7, 2010

(Albuquerque, NM) UNM Anderson School Career Services and Alumni Offices have teamed up to organize a "Speed Networking" opportunity for community business leaders to interact with Anderson students and alums.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 21st beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Jackson Student Center and will begin with a reception followed by a 60 minute networking activity where Anderson students and alumni will have 2.5 minutes to introduce themselves, exchange business cards and share information.

Anderson Career Services Manager Karin Kase stresses these are not interview sessions. She says, "The goal is for students and alumni to build their networking skills and gain advice and information from successful business leaders." Because space at the speed networking event is extremely limited Anderson students and alumni are required to RSVP at jobs.mgt.unm.edu.

Career Week takes place the week of April 19 22 and consists of approximately ten career programs such as "Rock the Interview", "Build your Brand", "Career Change & Decision Making", "Speed Networking" and "How to Job Search in Tough Times". There will also be mock interviews, resume reviews, cover letter/resume workshops and the Native American Career Fair. For a complete list of events and times go to jobs.mgt.unm.edu.
