Do you want an opportunity to meet area business professionals? Do you want to get a better idea of what you can do with your business degree? Do you want to learn more about a specific business/industry so you can make an informed decision about where to interview and start your career? If you answered YES to one or more of these questions, you need to participate in Corporate Connection!!!
Corporate Connection is a lunch series designed to bring UTC’s business students and local firms together. Every month, a firm sponsors the luncheon and showcases their business to approximately 15 students. The small size of the luncheon sets the stage for a candid and interactive dialogue between the two groups.
You learn about local business/industry so you may better plan your future career. The company learns more about you and may hire you for future employment. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
How are you selected to participate in Corporate Connection?
Students must sign-up to attend lunch by sending their one-page resume and a brief explanation as to why they would like to attend to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the fact that space is limited, students are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible. No shows are highly discouraged. Students that RSVP but do not attend the Corporate Connection luncheon may be ineligible to participate in future Corporate Connection opportunities.
Who attends a Corporate Connection luncheon?
Total attendance will be approximately 25 people per luncheon. No more than 15 students, approximately five COB representatives, and at least three representatives from each sponsoring firm.
