LM-U Match Alumni Mixer Recap by Emily Martinez
On September 20th we held our 2nd annual LM-UMatch Alumni Mixer on campus. Many of our current LMU students got the chance to connect with different LM-U Match alumni to talk about where our alumni are now. It was great to see how students who graduated in May of this year have found great jobs that they love in order to begin their business careers. We enjoyed snacks, drinks, and a fun scavenger hunt to get to know the different attendees at this event. This was a great opportunity for us students to connect with people who have been in our shoes once before. The alumni offered great advice about finding and applying to both internships and entry level positions. Also, it was great to hear about the companies that the alumni work for and what they do to contribute to the success of these companies. Personally, I got the chance to talk to our alumnus Thomas Scully who was able to connect me with one of his former employers so that I am able to conduct an informational interview to learn more about their company along with any entry level positions that they may be looking to fill.Overall, this was a great event to meet friendly students, LMU professors, and Alumni in order to build our professional networks. We hope you enjoyed the event if you were able to attend and we hope to see you on October 18 th at our speed-mentoring event!
