Connect with new Transfer Students at Golden Bear Orientation

Join CAA for the largest-scale Career Connections mixer to date! We’ve teamed up with UC Berkeley’s New Student Services to host an alumni networking event for 2,000 incoming transfer students during orientation. For many students, this will be their first opportunity to explore various career paths. At the event, alumni will be grouped based on their industry expertise to share their experiences from Cal to career with students interested in their fields. Join CAA for the largest-scale Career Connections mixer to date!
