Professional and Networking Events
College can be an important time to start making connections and forging relationships with other people in your field. Whether an event is hosted by Career Services or in partnership with a local business through our Employer Network, we hold a number of different professional and networking events throughout the year. These activities may be focused on a specific field or skill set or solely designed to help you meet your peers (and future colleagues) in your chosen degree program as well as local Houston professionals.
Alumni Mentoring Live
We periodically host Alumni Live events giving students a chance to chat with AIU graduates. Topics may include anything from how to stay motivated and on-track while taking classes to specific strategies for preparing for the job market. These live chats are an important opportunity to benefit from the experience and hindsight of graduates who have faced similar challenges to those most current students face while completing an intensive academic program.
Online Employer Q&As
Employer Services sponsors a Meet the Employer series, which brings in hiring managers and executives from national companies to discuss the hiring process and what they look for in future employees. These Q&A sessions offer the chance to gain valuable insights into today's job market, as well as ask specific questions about job application materials, learn dos and don'ts of job interviews, and hear about currently available positions.

Our Serious Talk series of webinars assembles a panel of industry professionals to discuss issues related to the job market, strategies for pursuing your degree while working full-time, and more. These free webinars are designed to offer insights into the college process that can help students feel more confident and secure moving into the next stages of their education.
