IPED Alumni Networking Night


It was the last IPED party/event for the school year and the last party for our batch before the new batch of IPeeps comes in. The IPED Alumni Night brings together the current batch of IPED students and the program's alumni. It gave us students the chance to learn where we might find ourselves a year or two from now in terms of career. It was very interesting because IPED alumni are in very different industries. Some are working for non-profit organizations, others are in government service while some are into finance.

We also got to hear about the different strategies they used to get the jobs they have now - from interview skills to networking techniques. This was helpful considering how jobs are really difficult to come by nowadays given the crisis.  So here's part 1!

There's John, Elizabeth, Bea, Xiaoli, Ramon, Michelle and Heather. Last year, I couldn't even remember half the names of these people. Now they're good friends. Boy, we've come so far, haven't we?
