“Strengthening Your Network,” a career webinar for University of Wisconsin Oshkosh alumni, will be held 7-8 p.m., Wednesday, May 4.
The free webinar, sponsored by the UW Oshkosh Alumni Association in partnership with UWO Career Services, is the second in a series of three presentations for UWO graduates about how to conduct a job search. The first presentation covered how to jumpstart a job search.
Participation in the webinar is open to all UWO alumni as well as current students.
Webinar presenter Angela Victor, UWO Career Services marketing and communications manager, will address business cards, components of a professional network, strategies for nurturing your network, establishing and using a LinkedIn profile and taking part in the UW Oshkosh alumni group and Mentor Network on LinkedIn.
The alumni webinar series was developed, in part, in response to results of a March 2009 alumni survey that revealed UW Oshkosh alumni desired more career assistance from their alma mater. UWO Alumni Relations provides career services for alumni and maintains an alumni group and Mentor Network on LinkedIn.
The third webinar in the alumni career series, which will cover resume development, will be held in summer 2011.
