Networking & LinkedIn

Networking is an essential part of any career and is about more than finding a job. Building connections and learning to effectively communicate with other professionals can lead to business partnerships, mentorships, negotiating opportunities and potential job offers.

Networking Events

Professional networking events are available to COBA students through the CPE each semester. These events include career fairs, career information sessions, job/internship information sessions, interviews, and more. It is recommended to attend as many of these as possible. Visit Handshake to keep up with current jobs and interviews.


LinkedIn is an important professional social networking site. It allows employers, employees, colleagues, and others to connect and interact in a professional setting.

If you do not already have a LinkedIn account, create one now and connect with the CPE.
