Building Connections: Career Speed Networking

Building Connections: Career Speed Networking

Career Speed Networking, a popular annual event co-hosted by the Einstein Alumni Association and the office of student affairs, gives students and alumni a chance to make meaningful connections with fellow members of the Einstein community.

On October 25, 2015, more than 150 students and 50 alumni gathered in the Lubin Dining Hall to participate in Career Speed Networking 2015. Einstein alumni were seated at tables by specialty; second- and third-year medical students dropped by to chat with the alums about their career paths and about life after medical school. Alumni Association president Janina R. Galler, M.D. ’72, thanked the participating alumni, including those who had travelled from out of town to attend. Students were encouraged to visit www.einstein.yu.edu/alumni/student-mentoring/ to find information about individual Einstein alumni willing to provide career advice, expertise and guidance to current students.

Alumni interested in becoming mentors for Einstein students should contact the alumni relations office at 718.430.2013 or alumni@einstein.yu.edu.
