Purpose and Goal:
Insights and Connections is an ongoing series of networking events open to all Adelphi alumni. Usually set in a business casual environment, in different local geographic locations in the tri-state area, we promote and connect alumni through social and career networking.
Simultaneously, we provide important topical career information. As part of each event, this career information is presented by expert Adelphi alumni who address the concerns and issues relating to our current troubled economy. With their knowledge and real-world experience, they can provide insights to those in career transition, considering a job change, or in fear of a pending layoff. The event concludes with our Center for Career Development staff discussing the services they offer to alums who are in need of career assistance or guidance.
These programs are open to all alumni who are interested in networking and career topic discussion, regardless of their current job status or career path. Often, we find alums who are safe in their jobs joining us just to support the University’s efforts in this area. Often, these alums serve as a resource to other alumni by providing additional vital information. This, among the other benefits of the series, is where the connection comes in.
Past Insights & Connections topics include career guidance for alums in the finance industry and how to reinvent yourself in a difficult economy. Future event topics include insights into the future of the local and global job markets, networking 101, and advice from a corporate human resources professional.
