Boxer Speed Networking

Apr 27, 2013, 2:00 PM
MPR | University Center

Portland-area alumni and parents are needed to assist current students sharpen their career networking and interviewing skills.

Reminiscent of “speed dating,” students have the opportunity to meet briefly with each volunteer, practicing their "elevator speeches" and talking points.

Conversations may involve career topics, the student's future plans as well as their current area of study. Speed Networking is meant as practice for students soon entering the workforce.

Students will be prepared in advance by the Career Development Center, and will be trained in networking techniques, proper business attire and conversational business communications.

Alumni and parent participants will receive preparation materials from the Office of Alumni Relations.

Alumni interested in volunteering should contact The Office of Alumni Relations at 503-352-2057 or email

The Office of Alumni Relations is a resource for all former students of Pacific University. Questions and requests for assistance can be directed to 503-352-2057 or
