Homecoming Networking Event for Students

Name tags and bright, cheery faces filled Chester’s place with an aura of possibility. Over Homecoming Weekend Career Services partnered with the Gordon College Student Association (GCSA) for the first annual Homecoming Professional Networking Event.

The reception brought together Gordon mentors, Linked-In alumni and Economics and Business Organization members with current students to meet and discuss career opportunities.

Senior Alyssa Baker described the experience as “helpful to gain perspective on the many career options for my major and stories from recent graduates from the field.” Alyssa, a communication arts major, met up with some communications arts alumni and received helpful advice.

Pam Lazarakis, director of Career Services, expressed her joy at the event’s turnout. “The event had great participation,” said Lazarakis. “It looks like students, and alumni, are getting a lot out of the experience.”

Focusing on life after Gordon is always important for students, and this event gives students a great opportunity to focus on the path ahead of them.
