Skidmore NYC invites alumni to participate in an incredible networking opportunity on Thursday, January 17, 2013 from 6:45-9:00 p.m., in Midtown Manhattan (130 East 59th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues).
Participants in this event will have the opportunity to meet alumni volunteers with experience in a wide range of fields to receive guidance with career transitions and the search for work. Alumni, parents, and friends of Skidmore will staff tables where they will be available for individual questions about career paths, graduate school, and tips on how to approach career transitions.
Whether you are transitioning to a new career or you are just starting out, this is a tremendous opportunity to make contacts with working professionals and fellow alumni. Feel free to bring a resume to have it reviewed by Skidmore staff and learn how Career Services can help alumni at every stage of their career.
Alumni of all ages are encouraged to attend. Additionally, a select number of Skidmore students have been invited to participate in this event in an effort to help them prepare for the transition from student to working professional.
Please respond by January 14, 2013.
