Student and Graduate Centre for Professional Success - Networking reception

Student and Graduate Centre for Professional Success

Thursday 29 September 2016
Derwent Cafe
6.30pm -8.00pm (light refreshments will be provided)

In the global business environment who you know can be as important as what you know. At the Business School we are committed to providing opportunities for our current students to gain career insight and expand their professional networks so that they can achieve success in their careers – whatever their profession, industry or location.

As part of our welcome week activities we have arranged a series of events which culminates in a networking reception to enable staff, students and members of the business community to network with each other and of course find out more about the Student and Graduate Centre for Professional Success and the support we offer.  

If you are a local employer this event provides an excellent opportunity for you to meet our new and returning students – the business leaders of tomorrow – and also promote any job or internship opportunities you may have. You can also meet our Student and Graduate Centre for Professional Success team and find out more about working with us in the future to raise the profile of your organisation amongst our students and staff.

If you are a new or returning student this event will enable you to practice your networking skills. You will have the opportunity to network with staff and students from the Business School and also local employers who may have projects, placements or internships on offer. If you would like some top tips on how to network effectively then you might want to attend one of our workshops earlier in the day.

The event will consist of the following:

  • 14.00-15.30 Networking masterclass (Level 7 MSc students only)
  • 16.00-17.30 Networking masterclass (Level 5 and 6 students only)
  • 18.00-18.30 Achieving your professional success presentation (Level 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 students only)
