World Café (Speed Networking)


Resume Review

November 19th


What is a World Café?

A World Café is a process through which an issue or topic is explored through multiple conversations that incorporate many ideas through a round table discussion.  

 We will be networking at tables through short introductions and followed with a discussion on a topic for about 20 minutes.

Then people will shuffle to a new tables and mix it up and start again with introductions and then the discussion.  It is a table networking activity.


 Multiple professional Resume Reviewers

In parallel to the speed networking for those who want to have their resume reviewed, you will have an opportunity between the networking sessions to step over and meet a recruiter.  We are adding more resume reviewers this year to make sure we are staffed with enough resume reviewers so everyone can have their resume reviewed who comes to the event.
