Wednesday Lunch Hour - Networking: LinkedIn and Beyond

Wednesday, March 4, 2015
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Warner students are life-long learners who are preparing for careers that will make a difference in the world and in their communities, in particular. Two critical aspects of professional development, however, are too easily back-burnered with the urgent press of reading, research and life's daily demands — networking and the job search.

Invest this lunch hour in your career development. Learn where to find career resources for now and later, sample LinkedIn learning communities, and meet the new Warner career expert.

All attendees are urged to create a LinkedIn profile (if you haven't already), and join these two LinkedIn groups prior to gathering for lunch:

  • Warner School of Education Alumni
  • University of Rochester Alumni
Don't worry if you aren't already familiar with this tool — you'll leave the session with information about how to use it to your professional advantage!

Everyone is also encouraged to bring a laptop, smartphone, or tablet — you'll use it to explore LinkedIn networking sites during the session.

Presented by Harriette Royer, Warner School Career Services, and Anne Shields, Director of Alumni Relations for Engagement

A light lunch will be served, with food available at 11:45 am. Program starts promptly at noon.
