Alumni

Connecting students and new graduates to Denver companies

September 24, 2009

The Colorado State University Alumni Association will host a Denver event for students and new CSU graduates to meet one-on-one with a wide range of industry leaders. CSU seniors and alumni will have the opportunity to learn about particular industries and practice interviewing and networking skills.

Denver networking event for alumni and students

The event will be held Tuesday, Sept. 29 at Colorado Business Bank, 821-17th Street, Denver:

  • 6-7 p.m. for professionals
  • 7-9 p.m. for professionals and students

The event is free and appetizers will be served.

Info interviews, share resumes

Last year, more than 50 representatives from companies in banking, real estate, energy, technology, and health care participated in the event. CSU transports nearly 200 students to the event in Denver who are encouraged to engage in informational interviews and share their resumes with business leaders.

Recent CSU graduates will have the same opportunity from 6-7 p.m., which will be before the students arrive. The event is very important for connecting established business people to young alumni or soon-to-be graduates.

The Alumni Association relies on the Denver business community to make this event a success. Companies can still register to participate, which is free. Business representatives include human resources directors to mid- to high-level executives.

43,000 alumni in metro Denver area

The CSU Alumni Association has been hosting a series of professional networking events to provide extra value to its alumni who may have been impacted by the economic downturn. With 43,000 alumni in the metro Denver area, many of the events have drawn large crowds.
