MASS AWIS wants to offer its members the opportunity to make professional connections in their career path of interest. 3 MASS AWIS members will get the opportunity to meet with a STEM professional for 45 min at a coffee shop. The meeting will be a chance to learn more about the professional’s career and make a new connection. “Coffee With a Professional” is a FREE opportunity for MASS AWIS members. MASS AWIS will provide the professional with a gift card to cover the cost of a drink for all meeting participants.
10 members are allowed to register for each “coffee” session. After registration, they will get an email asking for their resume and a short paragraph explaining why they want to meet with the professional and how the meeting would impact their career (500 characters (not including spaces) max). Their resume and personal statement will be sent to the professional that will select the 3 members he or she wants to meet with. Members will get notified by email if they have been selected or not at least a week before the time of the meeting.
