Speed Networking: Connecting Job Seekers to Industry Professionals

October 16, 2019, 2019

Event Navigation

Speed Networking

Join fellow UBC alumni for an evening where we’ll put a modern twist to traditional networking. Job seekers (or those who want to brush up on their skills!) will have the opportunity to meet up to six different professionals for up to 10 minutes to review their resumes, practice their interview skills and learn more about various industries.

Are you an “Industry Professional”?

We are seeking more than 50 professionals with hiring experience in a variety of industries to lend their expertise. Over the course of the evening, you will be paired with six individuals to provide them with on-the-spot advice ranging from resume review to interviewing skills or career information. Once the formal networking session ends, you will have an opportunity to meet other individuals in an open networking format. Sign up to be an industry professional volunteer below, there is no fee to participate.

Are you a “Job Seeker”?

Meet up to six alumni and local professionals from a variety of career fields during the speed networking portion of the evening. You will individually meet with experienced hiring professionals who will review your resume, practice some interview skills with you, or provide general career information.

Attendees will be partnered in advance. All attendees will walk away with a broader UBC network, an increase in confidence, and expanded industry knowledge.
