INI Students Attend Network Chicago

December 08, 2005

December 8, 2005 - On November 17-18, INI students had the opportunity to explore career opportunities in the Chicago area at Network Chicago, the second in Carnegie Mellon's series of Network Nights events. Three INI students attended the Network Chicago event: Antonio Challita, Efthymios Fellios, and Alexandros Goulielmos. All three are Athens MSIN students finishing their degrees in Pittsburgh.

On November 17 Carnegie Mellon held a networking reception for students at Chicago Symphony Orchestra Hall. At this event students from the university were able to meet with alumni and potential employers from the Chicago area.

INI students visited Motorola's headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois the next morning. At Motorola, company executives gave the students a presentation about the company and showed them some of the projects that Motorola is currently working on. The visit even resulted in an interview for one student - Alexandros Goulielmos. "It was a great experience after Network New York," said Antonio Challita. "I want to thank the INI for giving us the opportunity for these site visits."

The next Network Nights event will be Network San Francisco on January 11.
