Networking Lunches Connect Girard School Students and Alums

Over 40 alums and local professionals participated in the Girard School Professional Networking Luncheon series this spring.

Three networking lunches were held this spring to connect current Girard School students, concentrating in Sport Management, Marketing, and Management, with alums and local professionals working in those fields.  The events were timed to prepare students during the busiest recruitment cycles for those industries. The fall luncheon series focused on Finance and Accounting. 

The professionals take time to describe their backgrounds and personal career path, offer career advice, and answer questions about their industry and the companies where they work. Held during lunch, the students move several times during the 2-hour event in order to maximize the number of professionals they have a chance to meet.
