Columbia Alumni – LinkedIn Live

March 21, 2013 from 5:30PM-7:00PM

Event Description:

 

Have you ever been nervous at a networking event? Alumni business leaders are invited to help our graduate students learn to work the room. Appetizers, beer and wine will be provided. We appreciate you volunteering as a student “target” for this event!

Agenda
5:30pm-6:00pm – Alumni business leaders arrive for briefing
6:00pm-6:45pm – Networking Exercise
6:45pm – Debrief and advice from Alumni

For some, the art of networking brings about a great deal of apprehension. This event is designed to alleviate such anxiety and cultivate the networking skills of current graduate students within the MHR and IMBA programs.  The Office of Career Management will play host to this “How to Work a Room” networking simulation as students have the opportunity to practice applying networking techniques with Moore School alumni who are business leaders. 
 
Participating students will learn how to approach “targets”, avoid the awkward silence, properly extricate themselves from conversations, manage food and drink in such an environment, and how to cultivate a business relationship during the event and afterwards on LinkedIn.   
 
Students – business attire is required.
