Networking and Recruiting Events
The Graduate Career Management Center (GCMC) organizes a variety of networking and recruiting events throughout the year. Current events details and information on how to participate can be found on the School of Business's calendar of events. In addition, our Mason Career Champions—a global network of successful business-leading alumni—are always available to share career advice and connections with fellow members of the William & Mary Tribe.
Your W&M Network, Online and Around the World
Online Networking Hours: Network quickly and effectively from anywhere in the world via live text chats with the William & Mary Tribe. To participate in these monthly hour-long chats, all of which are text-based and timed, simply sign in from your home, office, local library, smartphone or tablet. This is a unique opportunity to make connections, exchange contact information and walk away with several new contacts. Plus, a transcript of your conversations will be made available following each event, so you can look back at your chat history, review your notes, gather forgotten details and follow up with new connections.
Breakfast & Business Cards: This series is designed to connect alumni for industry-focused discussion and more focused regional networking. Whether you want to look for new business opportunities, pitch a startup concept or simply connect with more of the W&M community, Breakfast & Business Cards is your opportunity to network among Tribe professionals from a variety of exciting fields.
W&M Switchboard: All the generosity of the William & Mary Tribe is at your fingertips. Whether you need career advice, want to announce a job opportunity, or are seeking to connect with others in your field or city, the W&M Switchboard makes it easy for you to ask for help and to offer assistance to fellow alumni. This online platform is best described as a fusion of LinkedIn and Craigslist, exclusively for W&M alumni, and includes a searchable repository of archived asks and offers.
