Welcome to the University of Georgia College of Education Virtual Meet and Greet!
This event will allow you to connect with fellow alumni from all over the country. Find out about other alumni experiences after UGA, where they are now, and how they feel the COE has helped them in their lives and careers. You will also get a chance to meet our COE Alumni Board members, who will share with you some information about the great things we have planned for the near future.
Get ready to exchange career tips and build your professional network – all online! It’s free, it’s only an hour and it’s fun!
How it Works:
Online networking enables you to speed-network no matter where you are in the world. You can sign in from your home, office, library, phone or tablet. The chats are text-based and timed, allowing you to make connections, exchange contact information, and end the hour with several new connections you didn’t have before. After the chats, add your new contacts to your network by adding them to your LinkedIn networks or following up via email.
Here are some ideas on how to get the conversation started:
- What did you study at UGA?
- What do you do professionally?
- Why did you decide to participate in this event?
- Can I ask for your advice on ____?
- What’s your favorite memory on campus?
- If you could do one thing differently in your career, what would it be?
A transcript of your conversations will be saved for you to access after each event, so you can look back at your chat history, review your notes, gather contact information and follow up.
