Young Leaders @ UR “Speed Networking Event”
Date: Thursday, March 5, 2015
Location:Eisenberg Rotunda in Schlegel Hall
It’s back!! After receiving positive feedback, we’re again this year hosting a Speed Networking Event with experienced leaders here at the University of Rochester. Speed-networking is just what it sounds like – quick, focused opportunities to meet those who can propel your career. We all desire to accelerate our careers and get on the fast track to success. Speed Networking is designed to maximize quality, lasting, professional connections in a short period of time. Attendees have about 3 minutes with each University senior leader until directed to move on to meet someone new. It is the hope that these connections will lead to follow-up meetings, lunches and referrals down the road. You can meet more quality contacts and actually have meaningful conversations in just one event than any other method!
Confirmed leaders include: Alan Czaplicki, Deputy to the Provost; Glenn Cerosoletti, Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Rochester Center for Community Leadership; Jane Gatewood, Associate Provost for Global Engagement; Kathy King Griswald, Treasurer Manager and Assistant Treasurer; Jessica Guzman Rae, Director, Intercultural Center; Debora McDell Hernandez, Community Programmer, Memorial Art Gallery Morgan Levy, Equal Opportunity Compliance Director; Eric Loomis, Sr Assistant Vice President of Administration of Advancement;Jane Posse, Associate Director of Recreation; Chad Post, Publisher, Open Letter Books; Terry Platt, Emeritus Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, Faculty Co-Director, Center for Workshop Education in CETL, Posse Mentor 2014-2016; Melissa Schmidt, Assistant Dean for Student Life (ESM)
1.) Bring your business cards
2.) Think about your career goals and be prepared to share this in an precise manor. Prepare a question or two to ask the University leaders.
3.) Be yourself
The goal of the event is to facilitate dialogues between people across the University and enable young leaders to discuss their career aspirations with people who can provide them with feedback on how best to attain their goals.
