Alumni and Students Network in Chicago

March 3, 2011

Advertising giant Leo Burnett's downtown Chicago office was once again the location for the Alumni/Student Networking Event co-sponsored by Wabash College Career Services, The Wabash Club of Chicago, and the Alumni and Parent Relations Office.

Over twenty area alumni made their way to the downtown office overlooking the river on Sunday afternoon not to get a head start on the work week, but to give nearly fifty Wabash students a head start in their careers.  A speed networking session with the students moving from alumnus to alumnus started the day followed by a general networking session for more in depth discussions about career preparation, internships, interviewing skills, and much more advice offered by the alumni.

Many thanks to all of the alumni for participating and providing living proof of the special Wabash network. Special thanks to Nick Prihoda '99 for handling the arrangements allowing use of the office space at Leo Burnett.
