Five Great Networking Opportunities in March

Do you know that 80% of jobs are found through networking?  Networking – or making professional connections – is an important part of a job search. People you meet may refer you for jobs at small & mid-sized firms that aren’t advertised, or someone you meet may be willing to make a call on your behalf when they know someone who works for your dream employer. Whether you’re a networking pro or this is new to you, plan to attend the CSO’s networking events in March. Don’t forget to RSVP before Spring Break – spaces are filling up quickly!

Students will have the opportunity to meet 10-15 members of the Duquesne Law Alumni Board of Governors, who work in various practice areas and settings throughout the region. In a format similar to speed dating, students will meet the alumni in small groups and then have an opportunity to continue conversations at a brief reception after the formal speed networking portion of the event concludes. This is a great way to practice your networking skills while meeting alumni who are very interested in meeting and helping our students. Registration is required and limited to 25 students. Seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis via RSVP on DuqLawConnect – Events tab.
