All-Access Mixer in Chicago’s Loop
All-Access Mixers are a VIP experience for students In The Loop, Lake Forest College’s residential semester in Chicago at Congress and Wabash. The Mixers provide students contact with Lake Forest College’s extensive network of Chicago-area professionals, and give Loopers an extra edge in making the most of their time in the program.
The Career Advancement Center’s annual Speed Networking event seriously connects students with professionals in their area of interest. From neuroscience to art history, students from all areas of study come to get career advice, find internship opportunities, and make connections that will hopefully lead to opportunities after graduation. Nearly 1,800 scheduled meetings were held during the event.
Not all experiences are created equal. Here are some things to keep in mind when evaluating a job or internship offer.
This Career Advancement Center-sponsored event invited employers to campus to exchange a few words and contact information with students about internship and career opportunities with their companies.
