Advice from the Big Dawgs: Alumni Bulldogs and Students Connect ONLINE!

Date: September 28, 2017
Time: 12:00 pm until 1:30 pm

Location: Virtual Venue (Online)

Join fellow University of Georgia students and alumni for the fall Advice from the Big Dawgs virtual networking event!

Students will get the opportunity to connect with alumni professionals in industry areas who live around the world! Alumni can share experiences, exchange career tips and students can build a global professional network - all online!

It's free, it's only an hour, and it's fun!

How it Works: Online networking enables you to speed-network no matter where you are in the world. You can sign in from your home, office, library, phone or tablet. The chats are text-based and timed, allowing you to make connections, exchange contact information, and end the hour with several new connections you didn't have before. After the chats, add your new contacts to your network by adding them to your LinkedIn networks or following up via email.

  • How did you get into your industry area?
  • Can I ask for your advice on ____?
  • What's your favorite memory on campus?
  • If you could do one thing differently in your career, what would it be?
