These days, there are a plethora of new technologies out there touting themselves as the next great social networking tool. As a consumer, it can be hard to know which ones are worth your time – and, in some cases, your money – and which will go the way of MySpace. Here at Penn, we don’t necessarily have the answers, but we do have the opportunity to give our alumni the chance to try out some of these networking platforms within the safety of the Penn Alumni community.
This month, Penn is offering up one such opportunity. On February 22, Penn Alumni and Career Services are hosting Network Roulette for Penn alumni and students in the media and entertainment industries. In this virtual speed-networking session, alumni will be randomly matched with students interested in the media and entertainment industry. Each pair will be given 6 minutes to chat and share their questions and experiences. At the end of those 6 minutes, participants will be paired immediately with a new match. At the end of the event, each student and alumnus will have made 10 new connections. It’s a truly unique opportunity for alumni to share career-related guidance and advice with current Penn students.
