December 4, 2013: How to effectively network for better opportunities

Come join us on December 4, 2013 on “How to effectively network for better opportunities.”

It has been recorded at various universities that less than 20% of students got their first job from a direct application to an employer. The other 80% received employment through networking. This remains true throughout one’s professional career. It is easy enough to show up to a networking event, but talking to random people is simply not enough.

Learn how to effectively network with our dynamic speaker, Manijeh Goldberg, CEO and Founder of Privo Technologies. Manijeh will discuss the How To guide to networking, as well as its importance, and how it has helped her in her career.

Cost:  $15

Date:   Wednesday December 4, 2013 at 6 PM

Location: The Broad Institute (Olympus Room), Kendall Sq, Cambridge, MA

Dinner and drinks will be provided.  Registration at EventBrite is required, ( at front desk.
