The UNM Anderson School of Management is inviting all of its alumni back to campus for the first-ever Anderson Alumni Reunion Weekend. The events on Friday-Saturday, March 23-24, will re-connect Anderson alumni to their alma mater and update them on advancements that have taken place at the school since graduation. Non-Anderson alums are also welcome to attend all events.
The Reunion Weekend begins Friday, March 23 at 7:30 a.m. with a panel discussion and presentation led by Anderson Professor Robert DelCampo. His lecture, "Managing the Multi-Generational Workforce," will give audience members insight into how to navigate in today's complex work environment.
At 9:30 a.m., participants can energize their resume at the Resume Review. Find out how even simple changes to a resume can make you stand out in this complex job market. At noon, Lobo Baseball Coach Ray Birmingham will be the featured speaker at the luncheon in the Jackson Student Center. Birmingham will inspire you to go out and be the best you can be. If you have never heard him speak you are in for a special treat - his enthusiasm is truly infectious.
The final session of the day, which begins at 2 p.m., will educate attendees on how social media can help you find the perfect job. These days it seems everyone has a social media presence, but do you know how to manage your online professional identity in a way that works for you? Join Kate Williams, Anderson Career Services program coordinator, to learn about optimizing Linked In, managing Facebook, Twitter, and much more. She will cover best practices for social media targeted to each individual's specific questions and goals. Due to the highly personalized content of this program, the workshop will be limited to 20 participants.
On Saturday, March 24, Anderson alums are invited to go where very few have been, into the new F.B.I. Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory. The RCFL is a one-stop, full service forensics laboratory and training center devoted entirely to the examination of digital evidence in support of federal, state and local criminal and national security investigations. UNM is one of only two universities which have been selected to work with the FBI.
