On August 23, college students from around the city will join with our community to network with and learn from our group of experienced professionals. This is an excellent opportunity to pass on what you've learned to the next generation, and meet the upcoming talent in Chicago. This event will include two very fun opportunities for professional learning: Panel: A panel of talented young professionals will discuss their transition into the workforce, and how social media played a role in landing their current positions. Panel members will include: Sonny Gill, Social Media Manager at US Cellular Samantha Ogborn, Community Manager at Walgreens Danny Cox, Social Media Coordinator at Razorfish Melody Hoffman, Associate Producer at Comcast SportsNet Annika Welander, Production and Project Manager at Someoddpilot Speed Networking: Thanks to Chevrolet, we will have a few stationary vehicles on site which we will use for rounds of speed networking between college students, the panel, the board members, and anyone else who would like to participate. It promises to be a fun time. Get to know other people, while browsing the amazing set of cars provided by Chevy!
