Winter Break Student-to-Alumni Networking Nights

The Career Center and the Office of Alumni Relations are proud to bring to you our annual
Winter Break Student-Alumni Networking Nights.

Networking Nights are scheduled to coincide with the Career and Internship Connections (CIC’s), and are designed to link established UR alumni with current students. All majors and class years are welcome. This is your chance to learn about careers and make helpful contacts for jobs, internships and graduate study through the informal discussions facilitated at these events. Alumni will represent a variety of career fields, and will have worked at a number of intriguing settings. They are prepared to share information about their career biographies, and inspire career exploration as well as internship and job search undertakings. Career Center staff will be on hand to help you make the most of the event.
