Due to the evolving risk associated with the COVID-19 outbreak and out of concern for the well-being of our guests, the university’s senior leadership has recommended that events such as this scheduled be postponed. We will be in touch when this event has been rescheduled and regret any inconvenience this change of plans may cause.  

We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your support.


Are you a recent grad looking for the first job? Are you in a job transition? Do you find yourself submitting your resume everywhere but not getting a response?

In this next part of our "What Stanford Didn't Teach You" career series, Mauri Schwartz (President/CEO Career Insiders) will discuss ways of developing a job search strategy that will land you the interview. 

In the current market, it is not enough to post your resume on the Internet or company website and wait for a response. By submitting your resume in response to a job posting, you may be trying to enter the same door at the same time as hundreds of others. Even if you are better qualified, how will you even be noticed? This talk teaches you how to grab the attention of the hiring to use LinkedIn and other networking strategies to grab the attention of the right person.

Come early and be prepared to make connections! Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Don't forget those business cards- you'll need them for the drawing after the program. 

6:15 pm Networking and light hors d'oeuvres

7:00 pm Program starts

8:30 pm Drawing 

This event is sponsored through the generosity of Stanford Associates and is co-presented by:

Stanford Young Alumni - Los Angeles, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford Club of West LA, Stanford Latino Alumni Association-Socal, and Stanford Professional Women of Los Angeles.
