It’s hard to believe that four SUccess in the City networking events are already in the books for the 2013 SITC season…with five more on the horizon! SUccess in the City events give our new graduates the opportunity to meet established alumni in nine different cities across the US: Syracuse, Philadelphia, DC, Boston, NYC, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. We are proud to partner with the Office of Alumni Relations and alumni clubs in each city to make them happen!
We kicked off the series at Eric Mower and Associates in Syracuse’s Armory Square. Eric is an SU alumnus, and we were thrilled to hold the event at a company owned by one of our own. Attendees heard 2012 grad Alison Neufang’s fantastic success story and enjoyed a great night of Orange networking. The series continued on a gorgeous night in Philadelphia, where we shared all of the recent changes to LinkedIn and how our students and alumni can take advantage of the Orange networking opportunities that are abundant within that platform. It was a wonderful evening – and we had difficulty clearing the room as the night ended!
#SITCDC – put on by SU’s Greenberg House – and #SITCBoston were also excellent events. In every city except for NYC (where our alumni population is so huge), we encourage current students to attend SUccess in the City. It’s always amazing to watch our up-and-coming Orange alumni make connections with our established grads. Smart networking starts early on in your college career!
Speaking of NYC, that’s our next event…and we’re THRILLED that Gabrielle Etrog Cohen will be our featured speaker at #SITCNYC. Here’s where the SOUL part of the blog post comes in. Gabby is a 2002 VPA alumna and is the PR and Marketing Director at SoulCycle – arguably the HOTTEST workout on the market these days. Gabby has an incredible career story to share, including the fact that she was recruited for her current position thanks to LinkedIn! We hope you’ll consider joining #SITCNYC on June 27th. Click here to register and here to learn more about Gabby before attending the event.
And remember…if you call Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, or San Francisco home, then we’ll be making a stop in your city this summer! You’ll find all the details here. Hope to see you at a SITC near you!
