Professional Networking Event

Professional Networking Event

Everybody in your community is at different levels of professional growth and everyone still has something to learn from others! An exclusive professional networking event is a perfect way to connect all of the brilliant professionals living in your community. It also provides an opportunity for younger residents to learn from more senior professionals and vice versa.

Invite Everyone!

Invite everyone in the community to attend the event as their professional identity. Encourage business professional attire and have name tags or lanyards at the ready!

You’ll be surprised to see the diversity of successful professionals in your community that could range from lawyers and doctors to social workers, artists, culinary chefs, entrepreneurs, and more!

Introduce Some Ice-breakers

It’s natural for people to be reserved in social settings and not mingle as much at first. Also, not everyone is social, so we suggest doing some ice-breaking games that will help everyone in the room learn more about each other! Try a few professional meet-up ice-breaking games that will help everyone to get to know each other quickly. 

One of the Ice-breakers we highly recommend is “Who are you?” In this fun game, the participants are given a piece of paper and a pen to write something interesting about themselves. The papers are gathered face down on the middle of the table. One resident picks up and reads a paper aloud while other residents guess who the description belongs to.

***BONUS*** Give small rewards to residents who make correct guesses.

Arrange a Desk for People Looking for Job Opportunities

There may be fresh graduates at the event who are looking for jobs or others who are looking for a career transition. We suggest arranging space at your event where professional job seekers are able to interact, exchange knowledge, read each other’s resumes, offer advice, and benefit each other.

***TIP*** Ask everyone to bring along and exchange their business cards or copies of their resumes.

Invite a Career Specialist

Another key person to invite to your event is a career specialist, career counselor, or recruiter, who can speak with residents in search of career advice and resume help.  The career counselor can guide the residents regarding jobs available according to their skills. You can also invite the specialist (and other professionals in your community) to give 5-10 minute presentations on a topic that they pitch you in advance. Much like a business professional club meet up, this will give you a chance to choose presentation topics that will benefit your community residents the most.

While the main goal of this event is to get your residents interacting in a professional capacity, and updating their resumes, the bonus lies in the friendships that will be formed. Community camaraderie and respect will grow! We hope you have a successful networking event.
