Career Networking Events

Last year, AAVC asked a sampling of alumnae/i to complete a survey about Vassar and AAVC. One finding was an overwhelming desire for more career networking events. Networking is a real part of locating a job or career, and career networking events can open up opportunities for potential employees and employers. AAVC, the Office of Career Development, and Vassar clubs in several cities are responding to this request by offering the following career-oriented events for spring 2002.

January 25, New York
The Office of Career Development and the Vassar Club of New York are working together to host an interviewing opportunity in New York City for Vassar seniors. These students will have the opportunity to meet and interview with employers in the area. A reception hosted by the Vassar Club of New York will be held the evening before the event, giving students the opportunity to meet and network with alumnae/i.

February 5, Boston
There is an art to working a room. The Vassar Club of Boston and AAVC will host a networking session for area alumnae/i featuring tips and hints about making the most of small talk. Meet fellow Vassar grads in the Boston area and take home a stack of business cards.

March 10–11, Washington, DC
The Vassar Club of Washington, DC, will host a group of Vassar seniors who are looking at Washington as their next home. Alumnae/i will coach students on living and working in the D.C. area. There also will be a networking event for all Washington, DC, alumnae/i to connect with each other.

April 13, Chicago Career Forum Cancelled
This program, sponsored by AAVC, the Chicago Vassar Club, and the Seven College Consortium, was originally scheduled for April 13 and has been cancelled. However, a similar event will be organized in its place. Check the AAVC Events Calendar in early February for more details.
