Alumni Virtual Networking Hour: Industry Networks (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!

This online networking event enables you to speed-network during a live event where you will be randomly paired with fellow alumni.Before 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 alumni?
  • “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 and 6 other areas) that you would like to network with and you are welcome to visit more than one during the event.

  • Arts & Design
  • Education
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Law & Legal Services
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Media & Communications
  • Non-Profit
  • Politics & Government
  • Real Estate
  • Retail & Fashion
  • Science & Engineering
  • Technology

From there, you will be randomly paired with fellow alumni for several 10-minute text-based chats that will allow you to make a connection, exchange contact information and build your GW professional network. We hope you’ll join us for this unique opportunity to connect with fellow alumni around the world.
