Connect @ Wes


Amanda Roosa ’16 types in:

Connect@Wes is a networking “practice” event for Wesleyan students of all class years and interests. The event will be set up in a speed networking format with students rotating through short sessions with different mentors to perfect their version of, “Tell me about yourself”.

Wesleyan alumni, and recruiters from employer partners use their experience and expertise to critique student “presentations” and give valuable insight on how their presentation might be stronger or more effective. This format allows Wesleyan students to build confidence while preparing to be a professional in the future. A reception will follow in Beckham for all participants.

If you’d like to participate in the event you must REGISTER on CareerDrive with an approved resume by MARCH 1st. Click HERE to register. Space is limited so register as soon as possible. By registering you are automatically accepted into the program.
