The Graduate Career Center offers numerous networking opportunities throughout the year. Networking is an essential component of any job search, enabling career growth and critical skill development. By creating a network of support, students gain direct insight into a field and strengthen their chances of successful entry. Networking events, classes, Insider Insights, and more are held throughout a student’s time at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. This sets them on the path to real-world success.
Open to all graduate business students
The Graduate Career Center offers a Fall and Spring Career Expo bringing multiple employers to campus. Through this networking opportunity, students can learn about full-time opportunities as well as corporate residencies. This is an excellent networking event for students, exposing them to a range of employers and career paths.
Each spring, summer, and fall, current graduate business students join alumni and employers for an interactive networking event. The first hour is a structured rotation so everyone makes as many contacts as possible. The second hour is more information to provide time to make additional introductions or to have follow-up conversations with appropriate contacts.
