School networking events

I have to give credit where credit is due. Just as the job market started heading south and before I was laid off, career services at both Fordham (my grad school) and Franklin & Marshall (my undergrad school) reached out to alumnae with offers of help. F&M notified me of a grad school open house they were having and promised career center events in the near future. Of course, all that is in PA… not so helpful. Fordham scheduled HR open houses at 2 big local employers. The first was subsequently cancelled because (I kid you not) the company announced major layoffs. The second was at a big record label where I worked and was laid off from a few years ago. Again, not so helpful for me. But their hearts are in the right place.
