UMUC’s Career Services and Alumni Relations team hosted a Virtual Recruiter Session on December 13th, 2016. More than 130 UMUC alumni and students attended. The event featured employers BAE Systems, Blue Sky Innovative Solutions, and AT&T. The event was hosted online and gave students and alumni the opportunity to chat with recruiters from each organization and showcase their LinkedIn profile and/or resume.
Each student and alumni had approximately five minutes to chat with the employers and pitch their work experience and interest in a particular position. Students and alumni were also able to chat with UMUC’s Career Services and Alumni Relations staff members to ask questions and get feedback surrounding their career search.
Overall, the virtual event provided students and alumni the opportunity to connect directly with employers from around the globe. The UMUC Career Services and Alumni Relations continues to help connect students and alumni to premier employers to identify possible career opportunities.
