College is a great time to network. The next time you're talking with a family friend, find out more about what they do. If you're at a college-hosted event with Gettysburg alumni or parents, talk with them about their careers.
The more people you meet while in college and beyond, the more opportunities you will have to make connections when you're looking for jobs, graduate school or ideas about your career.
In addition to the networking you may do own your own, the Center for Career Development offers a variety of events and programs to help learn about networking.
- Career Immersion Trips (formerly Bright Lights! Big City!): three to five-day intensive career programs designed to give students an opportunity to learn and gain insight about various career fields.
- Career Networking Dinners: An opportunity for Gettysburg students to socialize and network with alumni, parents and friends of the College.
- LinkedIn- Gettysburg Professional Network: This social media tool dedicated to connecting professionals includes more than 2,000 Gettysburg alumni, parents and friends.
Make sure to attend Center for Career Development events like Career Information Calls with alumni and parents in various career fields to build your network and hear first-hand from seasoned professionals about their career paths. Visit GettysburgWorks for the full schedule of upcoming CCD events.
