Graphic showing that over 30 employers will connect with students via Career Crawls this semester

Career Crawls are casual networking events that connect you with Michigan alumni and employers representing various industries throughout the world. Expand the reach of your Michigan community and join a Career Crawl!

Career Crawls are networking events where students can connect with alumni and employers in a casual, comfortable setting. Structured as a timed series of roundtable discussions, small groups of students (5-7) have the opportunity to engage with and ask questions of Michigan alumni who are excited to share their own stories of success.  

Whether you are wondering what it is like to work in marketing, or what the culture is like at some nonprofit organizations, or if you are just looking for some tips from a recent grad of how to navigate through the recruitment process, Career Crawls have got you covered!

These fun and informal events are held periodically throughout the academic year and usually focus on a theme (gearing up for the job search, exploring a particular industry, choosing an academic major, etc).  In the Winter of 2016, Career Crawls will explore the following topics:

  • Navigating the Winter Career Expo
  • Non-clinical Careers in Healthcare
  • Careers in Retail & Service Industries
  • Gap Year Opportunities
  • Health & Medical Professions
  • Careers in Creative Industries

Career Crawls are open to all students with all majors. Seats for these events are available on a first come basis so please plan accordingly!
