Career Networking I
The Career Network is a program sponsored and funded by the Bryn Mawr Alumnae
Association with significant help from the College and the Bryn Mawr College
Career and Professional Development(CPD).
The Career Network's goal is to provide
a wide array of services such as industry panel discussions, networking
receptions, and individual career counseling. Some of the events offered
this past year include student-alumnae networking receptions in several
cities, gatherings of professionals at local luncheons and at national
meetings, and a playgroup for children and Mawrter Moms in Boston.
Below is a collection of resources provided to contribute to professional career development and to encourage and facilitate alumnae/i networking for the purposes of career exploration and job searching.
