With a still competitive and ever-evolving job market, all of us could use assistance navigating a path to career success. To that end, on March 25, Alumni Relations invited students and the community to meet with successful alumni professionals at “Three Effective Tools for Success: A Career Building & Networking Event.” The alumni participants offered their expertise on various career topics ranging from branding to corporate culture to the power of social networking and much more.
Frank Kovacs ’84, host of the weekly radio show Your Career Is Calling, invited fellow members of The Breakfast Club of NJ to speak about their experiences. Other guest speakers included Paul Babicki, President at Tabula Rosa Systems and author of Netiquette IQ – A Guide to Improve, Enhance and Add Power to Your Email; George Pace, Systems Architect at Prudential Financial; and Frank Wander, former CIO and author of Transforming IT Culture.
Natalie Pollard ’93, ’98, director of Alumni Relations, emphasized how the event allowed students to hear firsthand how to achieve their professional goals. “It provided alumni, friends and students the opportunity to gain experience about self-marketing and branding and raising their netiquette IQ, which are valuable skills necessary in all professions. They also had the chance to introduce themselves and talk one-on-one with the participants.”
