Virtual networking provides CIEE alumni with new connections

Yesterday, 80 CIEE alumni from around the world participated in the CIEE Alumni Global Network’s first virtual networking event, gathering online to make new connections, exchange career tips, and share international experiences. Alumni from 17 different countries and a variety of programs--study Abroad, J-1 Work Exchange, Teach Abroad, High School, and International Faculty Development Seminars--took part, simultaneously chatting live around the globe.

Participants included alumni who are well-established in their careers, as well as recent graduates and students looking for a head start on their job searches. They represented 25 industries, from banking to non-profit management and engineering to health care.   

CIEE will host more virtual networking events this year, with the next in late March. Watch your inbox and social media feeds for details.
