Career Advancement and Networking Executive Series
The University of Miami Alumni Association has partnered with the University’s Citizens Board to host a year-long alumni career panel series targeted at major career fields to provide more networking opportunities for alumni.
The series provides opportunities for alumni to engage with seasoned professionals in their particular field of interest, network, and possibly make future job connections.
Success permitting, this is a series we are looking to replicate and take on the road with our national programming tour that currently exists with our top deans and administrators.
