York College’s Alumni & Student Speed Networking Event A Success!
On Thursday, September 20th, York College held its inaugural Alumni Speed Networking event for YorkFest 2012 in the Performing Arts Center. The event enabled students to learn the importance and how-tos of networking from York College alumni professionals in a variety of fields. Alumni who are entrepreneurs along with those from the fields of business, accounting, finance, law, nursing, and social work, filled the room and hosted tables. York’s speed networking event used the group-based model which allowed students and alumni to go from table to table to exchange information about their career and post-graduation goals. Students were enthusiastic as they connected with alumni and practiced their 60-second introductory “elevator pitch.” Alumni shared their experiences and provided valuable insight into the working life students will embark on after graduating.
