Are you an alumnus with advice for current students interested in a career in your industry? Do you want to volunteer to share your experience? Is there something you wished you had known when you were in school?

Are you a current student seeking resume and networking advice from alumni working in your target industry? Do you want to prepare for the upcoming career treks, future networking events and grow your GW network?

Then GWSB Student-Alumni Career Chats are for you! During these monthly, hour-long online networking events, current students will be paired with alumni for several text-based chats, providing students with the opportunity to build their GW network and enabling alumni to share their experiences and serve as a volunteer for the student community. Each month, the industry focus will change.

About the Events

You can participate in these virtual networking events from wherever you are - at home, at the office, or on the road. When registering for an event, you will be asked to answer a few questions, including:

  • "What can you provide or share?" - For example, what experiences, advice, or connections do you have to share with current students? For current students, this question can be answered by providing information about your major, extracurricular activities, and professional interests.
  • "What are you seeking?" - For example, what questions do you have for alumni about preparing for a career in your target industry? For alumni, this question can be answered by indicating what information recent graduates can share about their experience - or what's happening at GW today.

This information will help to spark the conversation when you enter the event and are paired with a student/alumnus for brief, timed, text-based conversations that will allow you to make a connection, share advice, learn from each other, and build your personal and professional alumni network. Check out this 90 second video for a quick overview of how this works.
