Lunchtime Virtual Networking Event for Villanova Women

The Villanova Women's Professional Network and the VU Alumni Association held its second Lunchtime Virtual Networking Hour on March 25. The online event that functions as a chat-roulette to match up alumnae, students and other participants logged 159 conversations for nearly 40 participants.

Prior to the event, participants created a profile which indicated their industry or interests, as well as their education and experience levels. During the live-chat event, participants met with at least six other women during the hour-long session and were able to record notes and view the profile of the women with whom she spoke.

“The interface is intuitive and easy to use, and the format takes a lot of the ‘fear factor’ out of the networking experience,” said Hillary Seith ’15 MBA. “I was able to help several women by connecting them with my contacts, and I made an important new contact of my own. This is an efficient and convenient way to network in a short time!”

The VWPN and VUAA will continue to hold these virtual networking events – stay tuned!
