  • Alumni Networking Roundtables
  • Networking Events and Opportunities
  • Online Networking
  • Hosted every other month at a different location in Orange County, Alumni Networking Roundtables are designed for alumni who are employed or in transition and are interested in expanding their professional network. Roundtables are an optimal way to introduce yourself and your career aspirations to fellow Chapman University alumni, who may have the connections you need to help you accomplish your goals. Attendees will be required to bring a brief, one page résumé of their education and skills, work experience and companies being targeted for employment. At the conclusion of the event, you will have not only made some new connections, but also potentially better positioned yourself for an opportunity to fulfill your career goals. Business casual attire is recommended.

    Graciously hosted by Adam Coughran '04 (M.A. '10) and Rob Selway '07 (MBA '10) at The Center Club in Costa Mesa, Calif.

From alumni-specific events, like mixers and receptions, to broader campus events, we encourage you to be an active member of the alumni community. You never know when you might rub elbows with the person who will connect you with your dream job.
