Gustavus Networking Challenge

Career ClustersNetworking is purposefully working towards building professional connections in your chosen career field.  Networking can be formal (meeting alumni or professionals at a networking event) or informal (talking to the person next to you in line or on a plane).  For more information on networking click here.

Career Development believes that networking over the holiday break is an important tool to advancing your career.  For that reason we are holding the first Gustavus Networking Challenge. 

How do I participate?

  • Over the holiday break (December 21, 2016 - January 2, 2017) tell someone about your career goals or interests OR connect with someone in your field of interest and ask about how they got started in the field. 
  • Next, either post your story on Gustavus Career Development's Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) with #GustavusNetworkingChallenge or submit online here. 
  • Bonus points if your networking story is with a Gustie Alum or a picture!
  • The deadline to submit stories will be January 6th, 2017. 
  • Gustavus Career Development staff will review the submitted stories the following week and pick the top 3 stories.
  • The top 3 stories of networking will win a $20 gift card to River Rock Coffee, The Saint Peter Food Co-op, or Domino's Pizza, all located in St. Peter. 
  • By submitting your story you may be contacted by Gustavus Career Development to feature your story in other ways.
