BRIDGE Society Networking Event - January 30 at 6:00 PM

The BRIDGE society is hosting a networking event for those interested in banking, education, food & beverage services, health, hospital administration, intellectual property, investor relations, insurance, IT, law, marketing, pharmaceuticals, publishing, small business, or more entrepreneurial endeavors after receiving your degree. Research suggests that alumni networking is one of the most important avenues to securing a good job, and these events are a unique opportunity to take advantage of Villanova's professional alumni network.

INVITATION: BRIDGE Society LAS in Business Mentoring & Networking Event - Thursday, January 30th at 6:00pm

Dear Students,

You're invited to the BRIDGE Society Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) in Business Mentoring & Networking event on Thursday, January 30th at 6:00pm in the Villanova Room. This event was designed in response to requests from our alumni and recruiters who recognize the value of your LAS degree in business-related industries and want to promote opportunities for LAS students. You’ll hear from alumni across LAS majors and from employers who are interested in mentoring and hiring LAS students. The conversations in the groups will center on how the LAS degree is valued in business-related positions and how to prepare and compete for these positions.

Over 35 alumni and professionals who work in business areas related to banking, education, food & beverage, health, hospital administration, intellectual property, investor relations, insurance, IT, law, marketing, pharmaceuticals, publishing, small business, and entrepreneurial endeavors from the following companies will serve as mentors:
  • Bloomberg
  • CB Richard Ellis
  • Citi
  • Give Back Brands Marketing
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Memorial Sloan Kettering
  • Morgan Stanley
  • QVC
  • Sedgwick Law
  • St. Elizabeths Hospital
  • Thomson Reuters
  • US Bank
  • Vanguard
  • And more…
*You do not need to possess any business experience or familiarity with the business industries/firms who will be participating. An interest in learning about these businesses and connecting with the alumni and professionals are the only requirements; however, to gain as much as possible from the event, over the next week, I recommend reading The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Look up the businesses online to gain some familiarity with them before the event. Showing an interest in someone else’s work will enable you to connect with them more easily.
