Mac10 is the new name for the McMaster Alumni Association’s young alumni program for graduates of the last 10 years. The program was designed with input from thousands of young alumni. Mac10 offers year-round events and resources to support alumni in their professional, social and intellectual development long after graduation. Events are also open to students, friends of alumni and interested community members – including parents! Go to www.mac10.ca for more information and upcoming events.
For those on the job search: In February, the Mac10Professional Non-Academic Job Search series outlined the steps to succeed in a targeted job search. The archived videos of these sessions are available online, just go to www.mac10.ca (Session titles: From CV to Resume, Identifying Potential Employers, Personal Branding and Informational Interviews).
