Each year the Business Alumni Association (BAA) sponsors events that range from networking happy hours to behind the scene looks at Chicago-area businesses and cultural institutions to community service events. These activities are a fun way to stay involved with UIC after graduating and a great idea for current students to get involved now. Meeting with and building relationships with alumni can polish your communication skills and create the connections you need to secure a job later. If you are involved with a student organization, it's also an easy way to meet and secure speakers for your events.
Like the BAA on Facebook to make sure you don't miss out on exciting upcoming events or visit their website to learn more about the current board. To get involved or submit event suggestions contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
