Undergraduate Coffee Connections Registration Deadline
Sponsored by: Weatherhead Undergraduate Programs
Date & Time: Friday, Sep. 16 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
WSOM Undergraduate Students:
Weatherhead Undergraduate Programs is pleased to offer Coffee Connections.
Coffee Connections is an opportunity for a Weatherhead undergraduate student to connect with a Weatherhead graduate over a cup of coffee or online. This opportunity allows alumni to share their experiences and career insights with students and gives students the opportunity to share their CWRU and WSOM experience with alumni.
You may have heard of Coffee Connections before as we piloted this program in spring 2016. There have been great success stories of students gaining knowledge about industry trends and learning networking tips, and alumni feeling more involved with the school.
Program details: a 30-45 minute meeting with a Weatherhead graduate. This meeting can be in person or virtually depending on the location of the WSOM graduate. In ideal cases, students and alumni will stay in touch throughout the semester and begin to build an ongoing relationship.
How to join: complete your Coffee Connections registration today, and we will match you with a WSOM graduate. Please understand that we may not be able to make exact interest or preference matches in all cases, but we know that any connection between students and alumni can be beneficial as stories and experiences are shared. Also, please note that depending on the number of students interested in participation in the program, there may be a waitlist. Students will be matched on a first-come, first serve basis in conjunction with match preferences. Complete details and timeline are listed below:
1. By September 16th: complete this registration form. The registration form allows you to upload your resume. If you do not upload your resume, you must send an updated resume to email@example.com.
