Overview of Science Career Networking Events:

Science students and graduates have the opportunity to practice pitching their skills and experiences to employers and industry professionals from various organizations and learn about careers in the field of science at Science Career Networking events.

During this type of event, groups of students and graduates with participating industry professionals are matched up at tables and become acquainted. The industry professionals move to another table approximately every seven minutes until all individuals have met.

There is time left during the end of the event for students and industry professionals to continue networking if desired.
