Summary:

In order to prepare for the upcoming MGT, MKT, and MIS Networking Night, the chapter worked together with the Society for the Advancement of Management and University Career Services to create an event to help prepare stuents for meeting business professionals and to make the most out of networking oppurtunities made available at the networking night. Networking 101 was organized as a workshop to provide basic advice for making a valuable first impression as well as making sure that a student makes himself known. The presentation also stressed the importance of maintaing a wam and postive relationship when speaking with prospective employers. The session also included interactive simulations that allowed students to practice immediately the lessons learned during the presentation.

The success of the event was measured by written student responses. Many students felt that the information provided through the workshop was both important yet repetitive.However, most maintain that this event was helpful in their preparation for networking night. With this information, we will be better able to plan next year’s event in accordance with the students’ suggestions.
