Virtual events enable you to make connections from wherever you are:
home, office, library, even if you’re traveling.

During these events, you will be paired with McMaster alumni and/or students for several short, timed chats (using a browser-based messenger system) that will allow you to make a connection, exchange contact information and build your network.

This is a regular series. Each networking hour will give you the opportunity to connect with fellow grads in your field of work or intended career.

These events each have a theme as a suggested discussion topic to help get the conversation started. Virtual events are a lot of fun and you'll find that you have plenty to say to fellow McMaster folks!

Virtual Networking Events
Registrants will be paired for conversation based on "chat room" model. When you join the event, you can choose to talk with people in any of several sector-based chat rooms.

What do alumni think about virtual networking?

"You don't need a phone or webcam to participate, you  just need to login and can chat/network!  This is the first month I had the opportunity to participate, and it was way easier than I expected it to be.  Great event, and great platform!"

"McMaster Alumni hit a home run with the new virtual mentoring event. As a first time participant, I connected with alumni from across North America in the comfort of my own home!

As a young professional trying to navigate the areas of career & personal growth, I had the chance to meet experienced working professionals from a diverse range of roles and industries. They provided a sounding board and helpful advice that propelled me to think a few steps ahead as I figure out the next steps in my life.

Props to McMaster Alumni for bringing networking to the 21st century!
