For our upcoming event we wil be hosting a new event called Earners & Learners and event based on getting students a chance to network with professionals in their fields.
Students, what better way to jump start your career than by meeting people who already work in the industry you want to break into? And professionals, get a head start on meeting potential interns and employees by connecting with the students who will be part of tomorrow’s workforce.
The Earners & Learners event is a chance for students and professionals to network in a relaxed setting without the pressure of a job fair setting. Hosted by Michigan Technology Network and held at Lansing Brewing Company, this free event includes buffet-style dinner and soft drinks while you learn about working in technology fields in the Lansing area. We’ll start with a small panel of local professionals who will talk about how they started on their career paths, and then we’ll move to an open format where students and professionals will have the opportunity for one-on-one and small group discussions.
Students should come prepared with some ideas about the type of job they want after school. You do not need to prepare a resume, although you may make connections who will want you to send a resume after the event. Professional should come prepared to talk about their own career path and the qualities they are looking for in prospective employees who are fresh out of school.
