Alumni Industry Networks: Virtual Networking Hour (Online) 

Location

Online

Event Description

Connect with fellow GW alumni all over the world to share your experiences, exchange career tips, and build your professional network! It’s free, it’s only an hour, and it’s fun!

Online networking enables you to speed-network from wherever you are: home, office, library, even on the road.

While participating in the chat, it is helpful to think through the questions below and come prepared to share your perspective and responses.

  • “What can you provide or share?” For example, what types of experiences, skills, expertise, or connections can you share with fellow Colonials?
  • “What are you looking for?” For example, what types of connections, information, or resources are you hoping to gain from this event?

When you enter the live event, you will be able to pick an industry cluster (from our current Alumni Industry Networks) that you would like to network with and you are welcome to visit more than one during the event.

  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Media & Communications
  • Politics & Government
  • Real Estate
  • Retail & Fashion
  • Technology

From there, you will be randomly paired with fellow Colonials for several 10-minute text-based chats that will allow you to make a connection, exchange contact information and build your GW network. We hope you’ll join us for this unique opportunity to connect with fellow Colonials around the world. Check out this 2-minute video to see how it all works or this video on why you may want to participate in a virtual networking hour!
