Ende said Hofstra holds a series of programs that put alumni and upcoming and recent graduates together, such as a speed networking event, career fairs and a monthly “Discover Your Passion” series hosted by alumni to tell grads how to maintain the passion they have in their practice areas and how to make an impact in the legal, business and social communities.
He added that Hofstra also holds a series of program starting with first-year orientation to boost students’ professional development. The program teaches the students how to build a professional image, from the proper way to communicate via e-mail, to social networking and mock interviews.
“All of it is geared toward getting students and alumni out there, getting them known and in front of the right people,” Ende said. “We are not just trying to get people connected. We want to better prepare them for the job search.
