Are you ready to find your people? This month, we’re hosting a selection of events that’ll allow you to connect with industry experts and LSA alums, create authentic relationships, and expand your professional network.
We’re using October to help students like you build up your social capital. What is social capital? The value derived from accessing and using a strong community and network of connections made up of people, groups, and more. Growing your network can not only help you gain access to internships and “hidden” job opportunities, but can bolster your confidence and heighten your professional identity.
If you haven’t already, sign up for LSA Engage to access these upcoming events and experiences!
