Getting your career started can be overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make; what do you put on your resume? Do you take this internship, or that one? What can you do in school that will be most beneficial to your career?
When you’re trying to make these decisions, it helps to get advice and network with others who have more experience than you. Join us for an evening of speed networking (in the least awkward way possible, we promise) and meet FindSpark Speaker Alumni from a variety of industries. Chat with them and your peers, grow your network, and have fun!
