LUMS Speed Networking Event 2012

19 December 2012

LUMS' Careers, Alumni and Employer Relations team held a highly successful speed networking event with final-year students and potential employers on 6 November.

A significant number of LUMS alumni returned to campus to support this innovative event designed to put final-year students and employers in direct contact with each other.

Hosted by LUMS’ Careers, Alumni and Employer Relations team, the event followed traditional speed-dating rules with students quizzing potential employers for three minutes before moving on to the next employer. At the end of the evening email addresses were exchanged and lasting relationships formed!

It was an added benefit for current students that many of the employers were represented by recent LUMS graduates, who were aware of individual LUMS courses and degree schemes and could answer very specific questions regarding the match of degrees and particular roles.
