You don’t have to live in the same city, or even the same country, as other K-Staters in order to make connections. The K-State Alumni Association is offering a new online networking program to members that gives K-Staters across the globe a chance to network and learn from their fellow Wildcats. 

The first networking event is at 1 p.m. CDT Nov. 18. The program is a benefit for K-State Alumni Association members; if you’re not a member, join by Nov. 15 to participate. 

Once you’ve registered for the event, you can sign in from wherever you are and from your preferred device. You will be able to enter six different “booths” (categorized chat rooms) during the session, based on the following industries or fields of study: education/social services; agriculture/veterinary medicine; business/government; architecture/engineering; sciences/technology; or arts/communications. 

The typed chat system is easy to use, and no camera or microphone is necessary. You will be matched one-on-one with other K-Staters for timed chat sessions where you can ask questions, exchange career tips and add to your professional network. While the event is scheduled to last for an hour, you can log out at any time. You can exchange emails or add new contacts on LinkedIn to continue the conversation. 

To sign up for this new event or for more information, check out the online networking program on the Association's website.
