1. AGENDA FOR TUESDAY, 4/12/11:
0700-0800: OPEN FORUM
The open forum is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow grads, exchange networking information, disseminate business leads, enhance your job search, and enjoy the camaraderie of in-person discussion on topics of interest.
It's natural to ramp up one's networking efforts in a time of need, but the most successful networkers treat it as a long-term investment. Academy BizNet meets every week, not because we think individuals should attend every single week, but rather to provide ample opportunities to come when you can. Attendance varies greatly -- last week we had 12, and a few weeks ago there were 18, while sometimes there are just 5 or 6. Regardless of how many are there, it's always an hour well-spent.
With no speaker scheduled this week, we'll expand the roundtable introductions to provide plenty of time to talk about what's happening in your world, with particular focus on any networking needs you might have.
Join us this Tuesday or any Tuesday morning when you have the chance to stop by. Grab some coffee (we meet inside the hotel's coffee shop) and enjoy some great discussion and valuable networking.
2. UPCOMING TUESDAY PROGRAMS:
4/19/11: TBD/Open Forum. This date is currently open. If you'd like to schedule a speaker or lead a discussion yourself, just let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. FOLLOW THE BLOG:
Keep your eye on the AcademyBizNet blog for job opportunities, events, or other items of interest. For timeliness, those items are often posted during the week, instead of holding them for this weekly newsletter. Thanks to Dave Jackson (USMA '73) who's been particularly active in posting job opportunities or other items that come to our attention.
Have a great week.
