"OwlTalks" Virtual Career Networking Event

For College of Health Professions & Social Work Students and Alumni

Date: October 29, 2013
Time: 7:30pm EDT to 8:30pm EDT


Are you a Temple alumnus/a with advice for current CHPSW students interested in learning about careers? Is there something you wish you had known when you were still in school and training?

Are you a current CHPSW student seeking advice from someone working in your field of interest? Do you want help exploring career paths? Are you seeking advice about breaking into a field or about balancing life and work once you have a job?

Join Temple students and alumni for this unique virtual networking opportunity where career-related advice will be discussed and shared.

What is Virtual Networking?

Whether you’re at home or in the office, in Philadelphia or abroad, virtual networking enables you to connect with fellow Temple CHPSW Owls in an online speed-networking forum with convenience and ease. During the event, you will be paired with multiple participants for several rounds of 8-minute, text-based chats that will allow fellow Owls to seek or receive advice and to help build a personal and professional network of Owls from around the region, around the country and around the world who share your interest in the health care and social work fields.

How does the Event Work?

  1. The event will have different virtual “booths” set up for each topic listed below, select a booth of interest:
    • Health Professions
    • Social Work
  2. Register for the event:
    During registration you will be asked to provide information to facilitate the matches. You will be asked to select the “booth” reflecting your topic of interest and to indicate whether you are a current student seeking advice or an alumnus/a with insight to share. You will be prompted to answer a few questions about yourself and given the option to include a photo, a LinkedIn profile, and/or a resume.
  3. Log in on the day of the event:
    On the day of the event, log in and you will be paired in one-on-one, text-based conversations with Owls who selected the same ”booth” and share your interest in that topic.
