Networking & Professional Photos

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Learn tips and tricks to successful networking, get some practice, meet others in the engineering field, and get a professional photo to complete your online profile. 

We will start the event with a brief discussion on best practices for networking and then have a few exercises to get us all out of our seats and talking to one another.  But not just regular talking, the kind of talking that will help you make connections.
