Volunteer Now for Meet-n-Eat Networking Event!

Alumni volunteers are needed for the annual Meet-n-Eat Workshop on March 20. The event, which is sponsored by University Career Services, the Office of Alumni Affairs, Century Club, the Women's Advisory Board, and University Dining Services, teaches students the art of networking and how to conduct themselves at job fairs or employment receptions where food and beverages are served.

Meet-n-Eat offers participants a wealth of practical information and the chance to practice their newfound skills on alumni professionals and employer representatives who offer suggestions and valuable feedback. Topics discussed include everything from "What do I talk about?" to "How do I juggle food, drink, handshakes, and resumes?"

"The Meet-n-Eat Workshop is a great opportunity for students to interact with professionals from many different fields," says Accenture employee Tomas Dundzila, M.B.A. '99, a volunteer who notes that students, alumni, and employers all benefit from the experience.

"We can't wait to shake the students' hands and talk to them," he says. "We are there because we want to know what is going on in their lives, and we want to help them succeed."

Dundzila encourages students to attend career etiquette events throughout their college years in order to really hone their skills and prepare them for success. "Then," he adds, "they can come back as alumni and help other students."

For more information about Meet-n-Eat or to volunteer along with other Mason alumni, please contact Tami O'Brien, Office of Alumni Affairs, at (703) 993-8737 or
