VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota is set to host the fifth annual Student and Alumni Networking Mixer on Feb. 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Muenster University Center Ballroom.
The mixer is a chance for students to get advice from recent USD alumni about possible career paths, how to prepare for life after graduation and what employers are looking for in an employee. The interactive panel will feature eight USD alumni professionals who will share life lessons from their career journeys as well as their experiences as hiring professionals.
“USD students have a great resource in the USD alumni community, which is 70,000 strong and includes Coyotes in all stages, ages, industries and locations,” Alissa Matt, executive director of alumni engagement, said. “The alumni community can help students as they prepare to enter the workforce, and we are excited to facilitate this opportunity.”
The event is free to USD students, but registration is encouraged. Students can register using this link.
The mixer is co-sponsored by the Academic & Career Planning Center, President’s Senior Leadership Institute, Coyote Career Kickstart Program and Alumni Association.
