MBS to connect students, professionals at Experience Business Casually

The Maine Business School will host an inaugural Experience Business Casually event Sept. 6 in the D.P. Corbett Business Building atrium. 

The event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., aims to kick off a new academic year. It will feature informational stations on business-related topics such as resume building, early career tips, professional handshakes, and building a personal brand. 

Eleven local business professionals from a variety of fields, including banking and insurance, will host the stations and share their experiences and expertise with MBS students in a casual setting.

“We are looking forward to having our business community start our year with networking and career development tips,” says Faye Gilbert, interim executive vice president for academic affairs and provost at the University of Maine and dean of the Undergraduate School of Business. “This is a relaxed event that will also enhance skills that make a difference in a career search process.”

The event is free and open to all MBS students.
