"Life After Lasell" and Networking Programs
One of Lasell’s programs is called "Life After Lasell." These events provide valuable opportunities to current students and alumni to learn from professionals about trends in hiring, networking tips and tricks, and asking questions about best practices for interviewing and “getting your foot in the door.” These events often end with a reception where attendees are encouraged to network and practice some newly acquired skills.

Alumni Career Panel
On February 8th, 22 young alumni came back to campus to network with over 95 students in our most successful "Life After Lasell" networking program to date. The program began by alumni introducing themselves and giving a brief overview of where they are employed and how they got to that position. Following introductions, students had the opportunity to meet the alumni who represented 13 different fields and practice their networking skills. Students left the night with business cards, email addresses and confidence to begin their job search! For a list of the alumni who participated in the Alumni Career Panel, click here.

What is networking? Networking is building a relationship with a person or group of people who are willing to help share information about job requirements, work environments and sources of job leads. It is a great way to make contacts and gather information. The purpose of networking is not to ask for a job but instead to establish relationships that lead to career building opportunities. Networking is the most successful job search technique.
