Free workshop to help students and alumni break into job market

Students and alumni can learn how to tap into the unadvertised job market in a free Nothing But Networking workshop 5 p.m. Wednesday in the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center, a student affairs director said.

Susan Nethery, associate director of student affairs programs and marketing, said online registration through the Career Services website is preferred and future attendees may register until the event begins. Close to 200 participants had registered as of Tuesday morning.

The speaker for the event Pam Stoker, assistant director of the Neeley Graduate Career Service Center, will tell students where to look for networking opportunities and how to present themselves, Nethery said. Another topic of the workshop will be online networking and some of the dangers of social media.

The event is the second of three on-campus workshops this semester provided through Career Services, Nethery said. According to the Career Services website, the third workshop will be Nov. 3 and is titled Maximize Your Internship.
