  • Job Search Networking Groups: This is an incredible resource for alumni job seekers and those in transition.? Paula Fitzgerald Boos is a local career coach who has worked with the Albers School of Business for many years. Seattle University has partnered with her to provide coaching expertise for alumni. Each month, Paula hosts networking groups in both Bellevue and Seattle, additionally sharing the same content via webinar for those not in the area, or are unable to attend.? The groups provide networking opportunities in addition to rich content relating to the job search. The next offering is entitled: "Job Search Strategies: Ads, Agencies, Recruiters and Networking" with the following dates:
          • Thursday, January 9 | 8:00-9:30 a.m. | Seattle

          • Wednesday, January 22 | 5:30-7 p.m. | Bellevue
  • Networking Events: Seattle University's signature networking events bring alumni together for a short, engaging presentation with a structured networking time following.? The next event will take place February 25th, around the theme of nonprofit leadership and diverse work within the nonprofit sector. All alumni are welcome regardless of their career path, school/college of graduate, or life stage. We've received some incredible feedback on the relevance of these events.
  • Talent Marks Webinars: Seattle University has also invested in a career development webinar series with nationally-known authors and speakers. There are new webinars monthly as well as an extensive library of previously recorded webinars.? The next webinar is Wednesday, January 9th with Ben Casnocha speaking on "Career Entrepreneurism."
