Why Network?

  • It could lead to employment! In today’s digital age, meeting potential employers face-to-face is golden!
  • It’s a great way to learn about trends within your field!
  • It lets you tap into the “hidden network”—the many jobs that are never advertised. An employer who is not hiring today may be looking for someone like you tomorrow.
  • Get practice developing your networking skills! Meeting new people isn’t easy for everyone, but practice helps. Remember everyone in attendance is there to meet new people!

Important Considerations

  • Professional attire is required
  • Bring copies of your resume! The opportunity to present it may arise.
  • If you register, you are committing to attend! Please show.
  • Remember you are representing students at CSUF. Always follow CSUF’s Student Code of Conduct.
  • Please do not contact the Irvine Chamber of Commerce directly. If you have any questions, please contact Andreana Pettersen, IRVC Career Advisor, at  or (657) 278-1614
