On Friday September 24th I attended a networking practice session put on by the UNR College of Business.
In addition to Blivit Design (I sent my entire staff), there were several companies represented. I only spoke with a person from M.A.Z. Inc. Mahsa Ahmadi Zadeh, and a person from IGT woes card I didn’t get. We had a general get together at first where the students were encouraged to just come up to you and start speaking. It was fascinating meeting all of the young, fresh, and un-jaded by reality people. They all seemed very enthusiastic (if perhaps a bit serious).
I was invited to the next event on Friday, October 15th from 4 – 5:30 pm in the Harry Reid Engineering Lab building. I’m sure I will be attending, and I would encourage any other professionals from the Reno-Sparks area to contact Jane Bessette, Director Career Connections at the UNR College of Business (Bessette@unr.edu) at 775-682-9144 to get invited yourself.
I met these students: Manpreet Kaur, Shayla Zeal, David Loomis, Kate Janes, Timothy Randall, Jared Harvey, John Williams, Brittany Kohlruss, Ceci’lee Grund, Drew Hauser, Jenny Crawford, and Elizabeth Howald.
It was a good networking opportunity for me and the students at UNR.
