The University of Michigan’s Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) alumni affiliate and the Alumni Relations office will host a networking and career development event this Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event will take place in Fairlane Center South’s Dining Room D in the College of Business.

Attendees will learn how to leverage connections with the 460,000+ people in UM’s network, how social media relates to networking and how to master their “elevator speech” or quick personal pitch.

The informational event will also provide immediate networking opportunities, as there will be time for introductions with alumni in attendance and a question and answer session.

Those wishing to attend should RSVP to goldleadership@umd.umich.edu.
