What is the purpose?
To provide a casual and intimate networking environment featuring multiple professionals within a specific industry.
How does it work?
The Mini-Networking Nights are smaller, focused versions of our annual Networking Reception. We hold the events at a local pub to foster an informal atmosphere. Each event features 4-5 professional guests from a single industry – giving students and post-docs interested in a specific field the opportunity to meet multiple professionals. To provide an intimate setting for meaningful networking, space is limited to maintain a guest to student ratio of 1:5.
The events feature:
- Three 20-minute round-table interaction sessions between 1 guest and 5 students/post-docs.
- An open networking period. Hors-d’oeuvres will be provided.
Past events have featured guests from industries/careers such as medical affairs, clinical research, regulatory affairs, and intellectual property.
Space is limited, so register early! The call for registration is first announced through our social media outlets, so please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear about our events and to reserve a spot.
