The University of Delaware College of Arts and Sciences Career Networking Night will be held from 6-7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 7, in Multipurpose Rooms A and B of the Trabant University Center.
The college, in collaboration with the UD Career Services Center, will be bringing together notable leaders and alumni from nonprofit, government, communication and research organizations for a night of career conversations and networking.
Those who attend will have an opportunity to connect with leaders and alumni from non-profit, government, communication and research organizations.
On hand for the event will be UD alumnus Matt O'Donnell, weekday morning anchor for WPVI-TV Channel 6 Action News in Philadelphia.
O'Donnell, who joined the station in December 1996, majored in English at UD with a concentration in journalism and a minor in political science. He also held several positions at The Review, the student newspaper, and was a member of the staff at the campus radio station.
While a student, O'Donnell also found time to do freelance writing for the Daily Local News, a newspaper published in West Chester, Pa., and he spent two summers interning at television stations WLYH-TV in Mount Gretna, Pa., and WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.
O'Donnell has served as a morning anchor for Action News since September 2004.
Prior to the networking event, an additional student preparation workshop will be held from 5-6 p.m. in 209-211 Trabant.
This networking event is open to all UD students interested in exploring career opportunities and professional development.
