Having a well-established network has become an important part of any career. The purpose of networking is to build relationships with other professionals in your field in order to share and retain knowledge, expand your connections and potentially open doors for future opportunities for yourself. On November 22nd, students enrolled in the Hospitality programs had the chance to participate in a networking event here at Humber North with several industry professionals.
The two-hour event consisted of a “speed dating” format allowing for four 10 minute networking sessions with the professional of their choice, with a three-minute window in between. The last hour consisted of an open networking session with snacks and refreshments, allowing students and guests to mix and mingle. The industry professionals in attendance varied from those in the event sector, general managers, association representatives as well as various hotel and food and beverage positions. This wide variety of professionals allowed for students to network with whomever they believed would be most beneficial for them based on their area of interest.
Thank you to all the industry guests who came out to network with our students, and to all the students who participated in this great opportunity.
