The objective of the networking mixer is to educate students about networking, and then allow them to practice their new networking skills. This event provides the opportunity for students and alumni to mingle with those who in a variety of different industries, including but not limited to high-tech, engineering, marketing, non-profit, and more! This is not a hiring event, but a great way for students of all majors to meet employees/employers and familiarize themselves with companies that are located in the Seattle area.
Not only will this event allow for the participants to practice networking, it will also give you the opportunity to promote upcoming job and internship opportunities to the students participating at the mixer.
