Fall BBA Career Networking Event

Thanks to the companies: Accenture, ConocoPhillips, PwC, Dell and Phillips 66.

MIS students gathered in the CBA Event Room October 16th to mix and mingle with recruiting companies. Students gained a broader understanding of workplace expectations, and the companies involved had access to potential interns and employees. Lecturer Clint Tuttle had company representatives talk about their work as they introduced themselves to the audience.

The networking portion of the event began after company introductions. Career Networking Participants

Each company positioned themselves at separate tables, and students split into groups of seven to eight per table. After ten minutes, the students rotated to the next table, while the company representatives stayed seated. During the ten minute session, students are encouraged to ask questions about the companies, and representatives get to promote their company in a more casual setting.  Students at table Career Networking Event

Finally, students and representatives were able to continue their conversations over dinner catered by Zen Japanese Food Fast. A huge thanks to Michelle Patterson and MISA who supplied volunteers to help with set up and clean up - they were essential to the success of the event!
