Dear Alumni and Friends,
Are you interested in improving your networking skills? Do you know what
resources and tools UCLA provides to help you with achieving your
networking goals? Are you up to date on how to tap into LinkedIn tools to
compliment the sources available as a UCLA alumni?
Here is your chance to get a handle on what is available and how these
tools can take your networking to the next level. If you missed
Everette’s presentation at this week’s UCLA Leadership Lab, here is your
chance to catch the encore in a smaller more intimate setting.
UCLA is always looking for ways to help UCLA alumni meet other UCLA alumni
in order to promote exchange of ideas and career enhancement. One of the
key ways to build relationships with others (NETWORKING) is to learn about
their experiences and interests.
The group meets every month for lunch from 11:45AM to 1:00PM. See details
about lunch sign ups and location below:
Date: January 23, 2015, 11:45AM to 1:00PM
Location: Provision Headquarters, 2050 Main St., 4th Floor, Irvine, 92614
Dress: Business or Business Casual
$10 includes sandwich, chips, cookie and a drink. Attendees are on their
own for parking which will cost $5 for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
I hope you will attend. One of the key ways to build relationships with others (NETWORKING)
is to learn about their experiences and interests. Going forward, the UCLA Anderson
Orange County Career Network will be a series of lunch discussions highlighting
interesting people and their stories. It’s a chance to get to know them better and learn at the same time.
