Backpack to Briefcase: Beer with the Boss
25 May 2020
Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a CEO? How they have the confidence, grit, interpersonal skills and vision to make the tough decisions? Or, are you thinking about getting your first job or what your next step is?
Join us for Backpack to Briefcase – Virtual Beer with the Boss – a professional development event for young #mqalumni where you will be able to connect with each of our ‘bosses’ – senior alumni with impressive job titles and even more impressive career journeys – and listen to their career story, hear their tips and tricks of the trade and ask them any questions you might have.
The concept for Beer with the Boss is simple: relax, grab a drink and speed network with a ‘boss’ in a group. Each session will be timed to 15 minutes, and after, move onto the next ‘boss’.
Following the formalities, you will have the opportunity to virtually network with your fellow alumni attendees.
