Connecting college students with employers and professional development: The Main Line Chamber of Commerce’s Talent and Education Network is connecting employers with talent through a series of 4 Opportunity Knocks events and the 2nd Annual No Limits Leadership Women in Tech Experience. These strategic gatherings with a purpose enable employers to impart knowledge that is essential for students to find a job and succeed at work. Students connect with employers seeking diverse candidates for internships and entry-level hires. Specifically, each event includes the below components:
- Learn: Interactive professional development for students focused on developing skills such as writing cover letters, interviewing, workplace communications, networking, and public speaking.
- Connect: The opportunity for students to meet and share resumes with employers.
- Follow Up: Introductions for students with employers they are most interested in.
