The Career Services Department recognizes how critical networking is to your job search success. As a result, we launched a networking initiative targeting key markets in Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. The program is organized into four separate Networking Clubs for each target area. Each club has met throughout the semester to cultivate students’ networking skills in the context of a specific geographic market. These efforts will culminate with a trip to each city in May to attend a reception sponsored by Florida Coastal with the local bar association. Although participation in a Networking Club enhances the experience, you do not have to be a member of a Club to attend the networking event. All students and alumni are invited to participate.
Below are the dates for each reception. You will be responsible for your own travel arrangements, although students are encouraged to work together to share travel costs when appropriate. If you are truly committed to finding a job in any of these markets, the trip is worth the investment.
During difficult economic times, most people find jobs through a contact or someone they met at an event. As such, this trip could be the most important thing you do in your job search. If you have not already accepted an invitation to a reception, you can add your name to our list of attendees by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Below are the dates for each reception.
