Jun 17, 2013
6:00PM - 9:00PM ET
Midtown East Location
Registration for this event is now closed.
Please note in order to attend this monthly networking group, Duke alumni must meet the following criteria: 1) 40+ years of age and minimum 15 years work experience, 2) currently live in the tri-state area (NY/NJ/CT), 3) unemployed for at least 6 months as a result of severance and 4) seeking a Manager, Director, or other Executive or C-suite role. If you meet these criteria, after registration you will be requested to verify that these criteria have been met, and to provide additional background information.
Finding a job in today's market is more than a challenge, especially for those who have considerable job experience and were progressing comfortably through the ranks of management but now find themselves unemployed and having to look for new opportunities
Duke NY has created a networking group/job angels program geared toward currently unemployed Duke graduates (undergraduates, Fuqua, Law, and the other professional/graduate schools) who are over the age of 40 with a minimum of 15 years of experience, currently live in the Tri-State area (NY/NJ/CT), have been unemployed for longer than 6 months as a result of being severed from their last role, and are seeking Manager, Director, and other executive or C-suite roles. Because these networking meetings, to be held in Manhattan, are limited to approximately 20 Duke alumni, pre-registration is required and additional information will be requested and vetted prior to confirmation. The actual meeting to be moderated by a Fuqua alum will focus on structured networking: individuals will present their 30-second elevator speech and target firms/industries, followed by group sharing of information and tools that are helpful in job searches (i.e. resources, events, apps, classes, etc.). The meeting ends with informal mingling, allowing participants to network freely with each other to share ideas and leads.
If you are a job seeker and would like to attend the next gathering of this group, please register below. Space is limited; registration deadline is Friday, June 7.
[Note: If you are an employed member of the Duke community who would like to act as an angel by connecting fellow unemployed alumni with open jobs or networking contacts at your company, please contact Erica Berg Gavin with your name, telephone number, and email address.]
