Networking with Students | Barrington Student Union: MPR
The Employer Reception is intended to showcase the possible partnerships available between SUNY Potsdam and employers. Mingle with other employers and find out about ways to showcase your internship and employment opportunities to current students and alumni.
The Networking Event with Students takes the place of a traditional job fair setup, and instead, provides for an interactive, educational, networking exchange. The goal is for students to engage with you in at least one of three ways:
- Engage in “informational interviews” to learn about your job, organization, and industry
- Deliver their “elevator pitch” for your feedback
- Present you with a resumé for your feedback
This is a networking event where you will have the opportunity to gain mentorship from employers and professionals from various disciplines. Business casual attire is required.
