Are you intimidated by the idea of networking? In this workshop we’ll open up the toolbox and uncover ways to make networking easy, interesting, and fun.  You’ll learn how to approach networking events with a plan and a strategy, how to start a conversation with pretty much anyone, and how to follow up with new contacts in a meaningful way. You’ll have a chance to practice on each other, and you’ll set some straightforward goals and create a networking plan to achieve them.

Presented by Lauren Stites, Associate Director, Engineering Career Services at the University of Illinois


This year, food will only be served from 12-12:15PM, followed by a 40 minute presentation, giving interns ample time to return to their offices by 1PM.
