Classes are over and that means the start of our annual SUccess in the City networking events, hosted by our Office of Alumni Relations, with support from Career Services. Searching for a job or internship? Looking for new professional contacts? Anxious to brush up on your networking skills? Then you definitely don’t want to miss our SUccess in the City events.
First up is Syracuse/Central New York on Monday, May 5th. In addition to our amazing advisors, several Central New York companies that are currently hiring will join us on: Eric Mower + Associates, Good Monster, O’Brien & Gere, ShoreGroup, and Terakeet will all be there. 40 Below Syracuse will also have a table at the event and they can provide you with a wealth of information on living and working in Central New York.
Established in your career and interested in attending as an alumni advisor to offer career advice to our students and young alumni? Please e-mail Tina Casella in our Office of Alumni Relations: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We start in Central New York, but also host events in several other cities throughout the summer. Here are the dates we have lined up so far, so mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information!

Boston: June 3
DC: June 4
New York: June 23, 24, 25 (alumni only, different industries TBD on each night)

We are not doing a SUccess in the City LA this year, but we will be offering several career programs for alumni in June through SUinLA. Kelly Barnett, Tracy Tillapaugh, Mike Cahill and I will be in LA from June 7-11 offering programs on career transitions, LinkedIn, and what recruiters look for when searching for candidates. Stay tuned for more information on those!
And finally, we are trying something new this year for SUccess in the City and are building websites for each city, featuring the advisors that our students and Generation Orange (years ’04-’14) young alumni networkers can expect to meet at the events. Here’s the one we built for Central New York: MEET OUR ADVISORS.
I look forward to seeing you at a SUccess in the City event this summer!
