On March 21, 2013 the members of Menlo College’s marketing faculty hosted a Speed Networking Evening, sponsored by the Marketing Advisory Board. The event gave marketing majors the opportunity to socialize and network with a variety of marketing professionals.

The evening kicked off with a short introduction by Mary Robins, Director of Career Services, and Fabian Eggers, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Marketing. Attending students then proceeded to socialize with twelve marketing professionals in the form of speed dating. Throughout the evening students rotated among representatives from Google, McAfee, SalesX, Home Instead Senior Care, FunLoop, and Chegg to mingle with one another over a series of eight-minute conversations.

“It was very interesting. We learned how all these people made it to where they are now – to success,” said senior Jessica Sous, International Marketing major. “We also picked up little things that we could do as students to set us apart from other people with similar ambitions.”
