On Monday, October 20, the Career Center and Frederick Campus staff welcomed employers and students to the Frederick Campus Networking Event. The event was catered to graduate students in the MBA, MHA, and the new degree in biotechnology and management.
Employers were from various disciplines including Medimmune (Astra Zeneca), New York Life, Edward Jones, and Meso Scale Discovery. Students met informally with professionals to talk about career aspirations and share experiences in the workplace and the classroom. Employers even accepted resumes for open positions on the spot! Company representatives were happy to visit with students; they viewed Mount students as polished and professional.
One student, Shannon of the MHA program, commented, "I thank God for the Mount and for this networking opportunity! Was it worth missing a day of pay? Yes!”
Networking is important for students in or nearing a job search. It provides the opportunity to meet others who may know about open positions, and to practice speaking with potential employers. It's also a great skill to help you advance in your current career by making valuable connections!
