Prepare for Symposium

What can I do to get ready for Virtual Symposium?

  • Learn about the speakers and sponsors. Register for Symposium to see the full list of speakers, sessions, and sponsors. Check out sponsor and speaker profiles.
  • Prepare a few talking points. People you meet will want to learn more about you! Prepare your “elevator pitch,” a short overview about your background, studies, and career goals. Practice with a friend or family member so you’re ready when it’s time to introduce yourself in the virtual event space.
  • Ask questions. Prepare some questions for the sessions you plan to attend. Interacting with the speakers and sponsors during sessions is a terrific way to network.
  • Keep up the momentum. After Symposium, connect with speakers and sponsors on LinkedIn and keep the conversation going!

What should I HAVE PREPARED?

You will have opportunities to network to discuss career goals and your resume. Make sure you have the following items handy when you’re logged in:

  • Your resume. Even if you think it needs work, make sure you have a digital copy ready to go. You never know who you’ll connect with!
  • A pen and a small notebook. Even at a virtual conference, you’ll want to write things down.
  • Your mobile device and/or personal computer. Make sure you have downloaded the most recent version of your favorite browser.
