What is virtual networking?

  • Virtual networking is an opportunity to connect with up to six alumni in one hour from the comfort of your own computer.
  • Virtual networking events are typically intended to focus on a specific topic. Topics range from industry-specific to general professional development.
  • Participants are randomly paired for brief (10-minute) networking sessions.
  • Participants continue to be matched throughout the hour or until they leave the event.
  • Participants are not required to maintain conversation for the entirety of each session.
  • All conversations are text-based.
