About this event

The Cal Alumni Association (CAA), the Career Center and New Student Services are hosting a virtual alumni mixer for incoming transfer students during Golden Bear Orientation. Help us provide incoming transfer students with their first opportunity to network with alumni and explore various career paths through exposure to a variety of industries and expertise.

This event requires very little preparation. Alumni volunteers will be organized into networking groups based on their industry expertise. You will simply chat with interested students, share your path from Cal to career, and offer advice to those who hope to follow in your footsteps.
