Weatherhead Career Fridays
The Weatherhead School of Management Alumni Association and Career Development Center invite you to participate in our Career Fridays luncheon program.
The focus turns to careers every Friday at Weatherhead. Students are exposed to a variety of corporate speakers, career panels and workshops. Interviewing skills, informational interviewing, and power presentations are some of the workshops offered this spring. Students also have the opportunity to participate in interactive discussions on case interviewing and serving on non-profit boards.
New to the Career Friday schedule this semester are alumni luncheons. These events are small gatherings for concentration/industry specific conversations. At these luncheons, we ask you to discuss your Weatherhead experience, what you're doing now and answer student questions. Another goal of the luncheon series is to provide students with the opportunity to practice their networking skills. I hope you will choose to be a part of the program this semester. The schedule for the semester is listed below.
