Stay connected to your Swedish experience – Learn how to build a real network for your career
The Embassy of Sweden together with the Swedish Institute invites Swedish university alumni to a unique opportunity to connect with other alumni, develop your networking skills, and reconnect with Sweden all in the same evening.
Being alumni is more than a note on your resume. It's a platform to build a network. Leverage your links to one of the world's most innovative countries as you navigate your career.
For this exclusive alumni event of the fall, we'll have representation from Swedish universities (flown in especially for the China Education Expo) and we've invited Ms Emily Roblin, founder and Managing Partner of LEAP, to facilitate the evening and guide us on how to effectively build connections and meet peers at events such as these.
Come prepared to connect with friends, old and new, and to participate in interesting and insightful discussion.
