YPN: Alumni & Student Networking Evening
February 3, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
We are happy to announce we will be hosting a networking event in collaboration with the Young Professional Network on Saturday 3rd February! This will be a great opportunity not only to gain priceless insight and advice about the careers you are interested in, but also to learn about life as a Muslim within these, and have an unfiltered view of what your life could be like in a few years insha’Allah. The evening will feature Cambridge graduates in subjects ranging from Economics, Engineering, Law, Medicine and Nat Sci to Architecture, English, History, PPS and Theology. This event is open to all university students, Cambridge or otherwise.
We will begin with an initial 10-15 minute introduction to YPN and thepurpose of the evening, as well as an introduction to the alumni that we have in attendance. For the remainder of the event we will break out into smaller groups with each career/subject having their own station with light refreshments to get the conversation going.
Of course it will not be possible to cater for every career you may want to go into, however it will still insha’Allah be beneficial to you to see how work in similar fields is, and network with individuals in those fields. We plan to set up a Facebook group for wider reach in careers, and for those who could not attend the evening to allow further networking to continue, which we can then build on in subsequent years.
