During winter quarter, the Albers Placement Center hosts a networking event for undergrad students. The goal of the event is to help students (mainly juniors and seniors) hone their networking skills and begin building their network contacts to enhance their full-time job and internship search. This is a reception-style event involving representatives from local companies, SU alumni, and professionals involved with Albers. It is a great opportunity for alumni to give back and assist students with developing strong networking abilities. It is also a time for fellow alumni to reconnect. If you are interested in participating in this event, contact the Albers Placement Center at (206) 296-5687.
