YORK

The objective of our meetings is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers, share job leads and develop networking opportunities.

Each attendee will get a chance to deliver their two-minute elevator speech, share recent successes and failures, present their networking requests, discuss their job search questions and any concerns they may be struggling with, and apprise the group of any new searches, requests, etc. that they have become aware of.

Please bring at least twenty-five copies of your “one pager”. This should provide your contact information at the top, followed by a brief overview of your background, and finally your target company list and a list of people you would like to meet. They should be handed out to the attendees just before you make your presentation, thus helping them to provide you with targeted assistance and advice.

Please have copies of your resume available to handout to those interested parties who may want to learn more about you or pass it on to individuals they think may be interested in talking to you. Also, bring a nametag to wear and a “name” tent card to place on the table in front of you.

Members of BENG and FEI are also invited to attend.
