The Ohio University Alumni Association’s Greater Charlotte Chapter Network is hosting the 11th Annual Charlotte Networking Week on February 20-22. This program, taking place in Charlotte, N.C., is open to both current students and alumni.
Undergraduate students are encouraged to attend the networking trip and get a jumpstart on their post-graduation plans. Both students and alumni can research Charlotte’s job market by meeting with alumni who live in the area and explore various career opportunities the city has to offer. Attendees are reminded to bring resumes, and business-casual or business professional attire.
The events will kick-off Thursday, Feb. 20 with career-focused alumni panels, followed by a cocktail hour. The Alumni Banquet, including dinner, will be held at Byron’s South End.
Festivities will continue Friday as students and alumni go on company visits in the morning. Companies include Wells Fargo, PwC, Duke Energy, Lowes Companies, Inc., Premiere Healthcare Alliance and PricewaterhouseCoopers. In the afternoon, they can tour either the Carolina Panthers Stadium or take a walking tour of Uptown Charlotte. CNW will conclude with a Happy Hour at Strike City in the evening.
Registration is $10 for the week. Round-trip transportation from Athens to Charlotte is available but optional at an additional cost of $30. Travel and lodging arrangements are the responsibility of the student or alumni attending. Registration is handled on a first come, first serve basis. Registration closes Feb. 7.
