The Miami University Chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) and the Miami University Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) are partnering with the Center for Career Exploration & Success (formerly Career Services) to host a Multicultural Students Networking Expo. All majors are welcome.

Why An Expo?

The purpose of the Expo is to provide you with the opportunity to develop and practice your networking skills in an intimate space with employers/organizations/ Miami alumni. In addition, you may also learn the types of opportunities available for shadowing, internships, and jobs.

Resources for the Expo

The Career Center will offer several training sessions prior to the Expo on how to develop your resumes and networking skills as well as sessions available during Career Fair Prep Week including:

  • Multicultural Networking Expo & Career Fair Prep Workshop (offered two times)
    Open to all majors. Learn the Do’s and Don’ts of Networking, what to wear, what to say, what is Handshake and what’s new in the Career Center.
    sponsored by Career Center and ODA

    Location 1: ASC 1066
    Date: Tuesday, Sept. 5
    Time: 5:30–7pm

  • Location 2: ASC 1086
    Date: Wednesday, Sept. 6
    Time: 5:30–7pm

We hope that this event will reduce many of the feelings that prevent underrepresented students from actively participating in our Career Fairs, on-campus recruiting, and other activities students should be involved with if they are seeking employment opportunities.

RSVP (not required but requested)

While it is not necessary to RSVP for the event, doing so will allow us to have an estimate of how many students may be attending so that we may order enough refreshments and arrange the rooms in a comfortable way.

Please contact either Myles White-Young or Amber Henderson if you have questions.

You may also contact Jennifer McLaughlin with the Center for Career Exploration & Success (formerly Career Services).

Attire

We suggest you wear business formal.

To Our International Students

While you are welcome to attend the Expo, most employers will not be able to sponsor H-1B visas. However, the Career Center will host several events throughout the year that will focus on the job search of international students. For example, the International Student Job Search is scheduled for Wed., September 27 (5:30 - 6:30 p.m.) in 212 MacMillan Hall. We will offer additional programs directed towards international student throughout the year.
