At this signature event, students will be matched with professionals in their areas of interest for a series of short virtual networking meetings.

Speed Networking is a great way for students to:

  • Build a professional network
  • Practice essential networking skills
  • Learn more about available internship and full-time job opportunities

Registration information is included below.


Register for Virtual Speed Networking though our Professional Registration Form.


Students interested in attending Speed Networking must first complete one mandatory Prep Session. Important event registration details will be shared at Prep Sessions. The same content will be covered in each Prep Session, so you may attend the one that fits best with your schedule:

Deadline: Students must register on Handshake for a Prep Session by 6p.m. CT on Sunday, October 4th.

Eligibility: Due to event popularity and limited availability of spaces, juniors and seniors will receive preference for Virtual Speed Networking registration. Registration is open to sophomores, and based on event capacity, they will be added to a waiting list for the event. They are encouraged to attend Prep Sessions and will be notified regarding event capacity the week of Oct. 5. With this in mind, first-years and sophomores will also be invited to attend a special internship networking program on the evening of October 22. More details to follow!
