Student Speed Networking
Thursday, October 24, 2019
YPT-Chicago is bringing one of our favorite events back for a 5th year! Together with our professional partners – APBP, COMTO, ITE, WTS, and Transport Chicago – we are bringing students and professionals together for a session of speed networking!
Are you a student who wants to learn what kind of careers are out there? Interested in transportation and urban planning but don’t know where to begin? Join us! We will have professionals from the full spectrum of transportation areas and they want to share what they love about the industry with you! Students, please sign up here.
Are you a professional eager to share your experiences in the field of transportation with the next generation of young professionals? RSVP here.
Refreshments will be served. Business casual attire preferred. This is not a recruitment event, so we ask that you please leave resumes at home.
Please bring an ID to present at the front desk. Advance registration is recommended to expedite the check-in process.
Please spread the word to anyone you know who may be interested!
When: Thursday, October 24, 2019
5:00pm – Doors Open
5:30pm – Start
Where: Chicago Transit Authority, 567 W Lake St, Chicago, IL (at the Clinton Green/Pink line station, or an easy walk from Ogilvie and Union Stations)
At YPT events and through our Facebook page, you can find like-minded people or, alternately, individuals with a different point of view than yours. Whoever you want to know better, it’s likely they’ve been to one of our events. And when you consider what puts the ‘Y’ in YPT, there’s a good chance you’ll meet the next generation of innovators and industry leaders, just by extending a hand or swapping cards.
Please check our calendar below for upcoming events. We will also regularly post updates on our news page.
