Networking is one of the most effective methods of finding your new job, especially if you are planning to make a career change. As the 2007 Sloan Career Report shows, networking is a proven path to career success for Sloan Fellows – some 50 percent of Sloan alumni stated networking as the source of their job offer. Everyone you meet throughout your time at the School is a potential source of ideas, inspiration and networking opportunities. With this in mind, there are specific events throughout the year that will expose you to many different sectors and a rich portfolio of contacts.
In the Summer term, each Sloan Fellow undertakes a substantial individual project. For career changers, this is your opportunity to choose a company or an industry sector that is relevant to the next stage in your career. The project will allow you to bring together your major learning outcomes from the programme, conduct some individual research and gain vital insights and contacts for your next career move.
