Industry – Graduate Student Speed Networking

Monday, October 29, 2018
Sheraton Centre BnB Restaurant

This event will provide chemical engineering graduate students with an opportunity to meet people currently working in related industries, expand their networks, and learn about potential career paths. Industry representatives are welcome to recruit graduating students but it is not required for this event.

The event will consist of 2 parts: 1) Speed Networking Sessions and 2) Informal Networking.

In the speed networking sessions, groups of 4-5 grad students will be rotating through 5 pre-assigned industry representatives in 10-minute sessions. Students will briefly introduce themselves then industry representatives will briefly (1-2 minutes) introduce themselves, their organization, and their role. Students can use the remaining time to ask any questions they have and industry representatives are encouraged to hand out business cards to each student. The informal networking session will happen directly after the speed networking session, where students and industry representatives can mingle freely, follow up with people they have met, or talk to those they did not get a chance to speak to yet.

Registration coming soon.
