Beth can be found on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and is already researching the next new platform that you haven’t heard of yet, but will.

As always, be sure to bring about 15 copies of your resume; a supply of business cards may come in handy for networking as well. Please polish your 2 minute presentation! Your networking time is a value added activity for you and your peers; practice your 'elevator speech' and try it out with your friends at FENG, compare contrast and revise it until you hear it in your sleep. This platform skill will serve you long after you land your next assignment.

Alumni members are encouraged to attend this meeting and participate in the discussion - it is a great way to give back to the group, and to maintain and build your network.

We plan on starting the meeting promptly at 6:30 PM, but attendees may begin to arrive anywhere from 6:00 PM for informal networking.
