Career Kick-Off: How To Network in an Economic Downturn

Calgary, AB, Canada · March 08, 2017 at 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Learn from three Calgary professionals who have networked their way to successful careers!

The current economic downturn our city is facing also translates to hiring pressures and a tight job market for new graduates. In a competitive environment, building and maintaining a strong network becomes extremely important as you get closer to graduation and enter the workforce.

Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A, brought to you by the Alberta Party, at the Last Defense Lounge. Three Calgary professionals will lead an open and honest conversation about how they built their own meaningful networks in the city: forming strong connections, the lessons they learned, and how to embrace the art of networking.
