Making Connections

On February 17 Assumption College held its 10th annual Career Networking Dinner. Sponsored by the Assumption College Parents Committee, the event provided 82 students, including 36 seniors, with career advice and the opportunity to network with Assumption students’ parents and Assumption alumni in a variety of professional fields.

Guest speaker Erin Champlin, the vice president of global business services at EMC Corporation and the mother of an Assumption junior, presented a talk titled “Secret Tricks and Tips to Land an Interview.”

“According to a Department of Labor survey, networking accounts for 70 percent of all annual hires,” said Linda Rosenlund, director of parent programming at Assumption. “The Networking Dinner gives us a chance to reach out to alumni and parents and engage them to help our students practice the art of networking and navigating their way to landing a job.”
