Scripps College: Life After Scripps Networking Event

Big-Image

Once a year, my college has a full week (called Life After Scripps) of activities dedicated to professional development such as resumes, job searching, wage negotiating, and much more.  I personally only attended the Speed Networking event and LinkedIn workshop, but they were phenomenal.  Ever since I created a LinkedIn account I assumed you were only supposed to connect to the people who were closest to you and in your field, but apparently you should connect with everyone who could be a potential link.  For the Speed Networking, it was good practice for giving my elevator pitch, and I managed to polish it down so that it was smoother than before.  The best part was dinner afterwards, for I was lucky enough to eat with a Scripps alumn who is currently a recruiter for a tech company.  She had lots of advice, and I know I came off a bit unpolished, but all I can do is improve with her suggestions!
