Dining with Professionals (DWP – February 24th, 2018)

SASE UC San Diego is hosting their annual Dining with Professionals(DWP) event on February 24th, 2018! Dining with Professionals is an amazing opportunity where students can come dine with professionals from industry, research, and academia in the San Diego area. Here, students can learn more about their career passions and find out more beyond the surface of typical job descriptions and delve into the mind of an actual professional with a personal story.


SASE UC San Diego aims to give the best experience for students and professionals alike. Career fairs, although useful to network, only help so much in allowing students to understand what exactly certain job positions entail. Dining with Professionals was organized in hopes to bridge that knowledge gap and help students prepare themselves professionally. The event allows a more personal setting where students have a chance to network in conversations that are longer and more in-depth than one minute pitches. The atmosphere is different and allows a unique experience that cannot be easily found. Throughout the years, SASE UC San Diego has continually improved each iteration of DWP and take great pride in the positive impact DWP has on students and professionals all around.


Registrations will be open until February 11th! Go to this link to save your spot!
