Connections Made

The annual San Antonio Making Connections program attracted over 100 alumni and an additional 100 students on September 25 in the Great Hall on campus. The Making Connections series also takes place across several other cities over the winter break.

This program is sponsored from the hard-working staff at Career Services with support from the Alumni Office. The event was a huge success this year as measured by the attendance from alumni (such as Ben Newhouse) and students and the level of conversation.

Hi David, this is a good way to for students to network but imagine if this networking could have had hundreds more students and alumni via a virtual network. Please take a look at a new free service which creates free Resume Networks for colleges so their students can create an online resume portfolio and network with recruiters. We could help you launch a Resume Network for your students too!
