Premier Networking Event Options
- “Think Tank” meeting for up to eight people: Career Services will host breakfast or lunch for two representatives from your organization plus up to six key faculty, staff, and/or students at the Trailhead Café (or an equivalent location.) This will help problem solve, develop student and faculty connections, provide feedback for programs, and build relationships.
- Etiquette Dinner: Support an interactive event that teaches dining etiquette in the career building process. Students will learn the proper table manners to make a positive impression during a lunch or dinner interview. In addition to your logo and organization name recognized as a key sponsor of the event, your organization can identify a representative to be the keynote or introductory presenter to kick off the event.
- Student Networking Reception: This interactive event is designed as a professional networking event that gives students and recruiters a chance to meet and interact at a designated time during the semester. Career Services will work with you to ensure the primary student population you are interested in hiring is present at this event. This will include light refreshments.
- Create Your Own Idea: We’re always happy to brainstorm a new idea with you that meets the spirit of engaging and connecting with students, faculty, and staff!
