Event Details

In partnership with the Hiatt Career Center, the HSSP Department and The Heller School, industry nights are an opportunity for students to:

  • Connect with industry professional about this and related industries
  • Learn about new industries and organizations
  • Explore different career paths
  • Strengthen and build confidence in communication and networking skills
  • Meet others who are interested in the same career fields

Industry nights have three components:

  1. Case challenge
  2. Welcome & Kickoff
  3. Industry Meetups

Case Challenge
Pre-selected industry professionals bring their greatest challenge and Brandeis students solve it. Students will be divided into small teams of 4-6 and be provided a case study or exercise. Students will work collaboratively with their team to develop solutions to these exercises. Teams will present their solutions to a panel of industry experts who seek to help students develop professionally and whose organizations are committed to recruiting at Brandeis for jobs and/or internships during the 2016/17 academic year. Participants will:

  • Gain in-depth insight into the types of problems field-specific industry professionals experience
  • Learn how approaches to challenges differ from organization to organization
  • Strengthen communication and networking skills by presenting to professionals through group pitch presentations
  • While this portion of the event is primarily for Juniors and Seniors, First Years and Sophomores are encouraged to attend, observe and learn.

Welcome & Kickoff
Hear from Hiatt Career Center staff and industry professionals about how to work a room, how to network and connect with representatives, and much more.

Open Networking
Networking is divided into different rooms by industry cluster to help employers and students with matching interests connect more easily. You will join approximately 20 industry professionals in a dedicated networking room based on your primary career field/function interest area. You will receive a list of the industry representatives in each room and may rotate through the different rooms as you wish. You are welcome to ask questions about our guests’ career paths, organizations, fields, job functions, and such. All students are welcome regardless of major, class year or stage of career development.
