How does one participate in a Virtual Networking Event?

Online networking enables our global alumni body to connect with one another in chat-based conversations no matter where they are in the world. Participants can join these events on mobile devices or computers from your home, office, local library - anywhere with an internet connection! The chats are text-based and timed, allowing you to make connections, exchange contact information, and end the hour with several new connections you didn't have before. After the chats, add your new contacts to your network by connecting adding them to your LinkedIn networks or following up via email.

A transcript of your conversations will be saved for you to access after each event, so you can look back at your chat history, review your notes, gather contact information and follow up! Most events last for about an hour, but participants can enter and exit the event as they wish.

Themes are based around connecting alumni by their industry or a professional development topic of interest. Stay tuned for details on upcoming events sponsored by the Georgetown University Alumni Association and Alumni Career Services! Email acs@georgetown.edu if you have a suggestion for a future event.
