Northeastern’s virtual networking hour

Virtual networking hour

Have you heard about this opportunity to share your experiences, exchange career tips and build your professional network?

Scheduled each month, the Virtual Northeastern Networking Hours allow you to participate in a series of 7 minute text-based chats organized by industry. You can join more than one booth to network with fellow alumni, students, and parents. The intent is to help you build your connections with those in your area or those who you’d like to meet. It’s easy and convenient to log in from anywhere to grow your network.

We’d love to hear your feedback if you’re able to participate.

The next session is scheduled for August 16, 2016, from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET.  Register here.
