Colgate’s Professional Networks help alumni tackle today’s ever-changing job world

A hackathon to write computer code for a new charity. Career advice from an astronaut. A visit to a major television studio to hear alumni media professionals discuss the future of their industry. These are just a few of the focused career-field events the Colgate Professional Networks have hosted. The 10 CPNs, representing different industries from real estate to digital business and technology, have inspired alumni to help fellow graduates and students keep up with today's career world and reimagine professional goals. And as enthusiasm for the 4-year-old program grows, so does the giving rate among participants. READ Networking with Nuance
