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!"
