The Professional Networking Symposium is designed to help students and young alumni better understand potential paths after graduation, including career and graduate school options. There are also many opportunities for students, alumni, and friends of Westminster College to meet and network with others in their field. The Symposium includes a career fair, breakout sessions and an opportunity to connect with students and other alumni. Sessions are designed to address specific topics and interests, include participants with directly relevant experience, and are moderated by experienced professionals.
Given current circumstances with regards to COVID-19, this year's symposium will be entirely virtual. This innovative approach will allow us to enlist the help of alumni from across the country without the barriers of physical distance to campus. We encourage our community to take advantage of this opportunity and make it a point to join us!
The College will utilize Zoom Online Web Conferencing to facilitate the symposium. We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with the platform prior to the event. For an ideal experience, a working web camera, speakers and microphone is optimal. You can also download the Zoom app on your smartphone.
