Arriving at LinkUp

  • Nametag

Conversation Starters

To help begin your networking rounds, consider the following prompts:

  • Briefly share your personal and professional history
  • Share highlights of your graduate experience: practicum and internship, conferences, research, etc. 
  • Ask about the alumni's experience as a graduate student
  • Ask about the alumni's professional life. How did they get to where they are today?
  • Share tentative plans for your expected trajectory following graduation

 The goal is to quickly go into conversations around professional pathways. Avoid surface level conversation topics. Your 15 minutes will go fast.

Make the Most of the Event

Both graduate and undergraduate students will attend this event

  • We will pair graduate students with alumni of the same program when possible 

Everyone should definitely:

  • Come dressed in "smart casual"
  • Be prepared with a 30-60 second introduction of yourself (an elevator pitch)
  • Have a short list of prepared questions you can ask the alumni
