The Westminster College School of Business Networking Day took place on Nov. 12, with the goal of helping Westminster students and recent alumni explore networking related topics.
“The Professional Networking Symposium serves as an important platform for our students to interact and engage with a variety of individuals who are looking to share their expertise and experiences to best enhance overall connectivity between students, faculty, administration, alumni, employers, and other professional affiliates,” said Brian Petrus ‘10, instructor of business administration. “Additionally, these networking sessions have culminated in multiple students landing jobs, internships, externships, and general lifelong connections.”
Participants had the opportunity to view different career options, develop networking contacts, and secure better internships or full-time jobs. The panel sessions included topics such as, networking 101, informational interviews, sales and marketing, personal finance, resume review, and finding a job/internship.
“Over the past several years, I have witnessed the symposium grow from a few dozen individual participants to hundreds of networkers,” said Petrus. “The most exciting part, in my opinion, is the story that each individual brings to the event. You never know what you may learn, who you may meet, where the day may take you, and what may come as a result of having participated.”
