University Relations and the Career Center hosted Connect@Wes Feb. 28 on campus. The career advancement forum featured an array of experts — created for Wesleyan alumni and students.

During the event’s “Creating Connections,” workshop, students of all class years and interests were matched with Expert Advisors (recruiters and hiring managers as well as alumni and parent volunteers) for brief, one-on-one sessions.  Students introduced themselves and their backgrounds, and practiced their networking and presentation skills.
