Flashes of Insight on LinkedIn
Join us on LinkedIn for discussions of what it means to survive and thrive in the professional world. We encourage all alumni and students to see what is being shared. Alumni are also invited to share career knowledge or advice by posting to the "Kent State University Alumni Association (official group)" on LinkedIn (one post per topic). Write for the audience of current students and alumni and begin your post with a title. Post about your industry knowledge or first hand professional experience.
Each year the Alumni Association hosts career events for students and alumni. The networking nights feature professionals in several fields who provide career assistance to those new in the field as well as individuals looking to expand their network. A similar event, Careers Over Coffee, involves a panel of alumni from specific fields who cover topics like what skills potential employers are searching for in today's job market. Students will have the opportunity to ask follow up questions over coffee.
