Judson University to Host First Networking Night for Community
(Elgin, IL September 13, 2010) Judson University will host its first bi-annual Network Night from 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday, September 23 at the Eagle Lounge, Lindner Tower at Judson’s Elgin campus. The evening will allow Judson students, alumni, faculty and staff to connect with each other and connect with Fox Valley businesses. Professionals from all industries and areas of interest are encouraged to attend.
Along with an hour to mix and mingle, the evening's agenda will feature discussion groups from 8-9 p.m. with talks on social media, resume building, effective networking and much more. Door prizes and discounts will be given by the event's sponsors, among them Elgin Instant Print, Everything Floral, and the West Dundee Starbucks. Any other businesses that are interested in sponsoring the event should send a request via email to JUniverse@judsonu.edu.
"We hope that this will garner strong ties both within and around the Judson community. The Fox Valley, Elgin, and Judson have so many great resources with so many talented professionals that we wanted to find away to interconnect them," says Bethany Suckrow, Judson’s Social Media Manager. "No matter what industry someone is working in or studying, a strong network of professional support is a necessity for moving forward, especially in this economy."
Registration is open through Wednesday, September 22. Those interested in attending can register online at JudsonU.edu/NetworkNight and visit Judson's Facebook at Facebook.com/JudsonU for updates.
