The Ittleson Networking Reception

Join us for the Ittleson Networking Reception!  Sponsored by CareerLAB and the Office of Alumni Relations, this annual summer-in-the-city Brown tradition brings together alumni and students to share information about careers and career paths.  

Alumni from diverse career fields serve as "industry roundtable hosts" and answer your questions about their backgrounds, career choices, and opportunities in their fields.  Time is included for informal conversations with alumni and other students interning in New York.  Meet both younger alums who can share their stories of starting out after graduation and more experienced alums with a seasoned view.  

Whether you are exploring career interests, figured out what you want to do and are looking to broaden your network or just interested in meeting Brown alumni in New York - come join us for this fun and informative event!
