This year, Cal Poly Society of Women Engineers hosted its 40th annual Evening with Industry! Companies purchased 45 tables and the Cal Poly Society of Women Engineers public relations team worked hard to fill all 350 spots! The team reached out to all members and departments through email and social advertisement. A Facebook event was created and shared with campus groups. These events and emails invited them to the general meeting where members and non-members came to purchase tickets. Student officers also presented in classrooms and to club organizations. Additionally, we held a table at our campus’s main lawn where a high volume of students walked by and were invited to the event.
To make sign-ups easier, our officers set up an online payment system, as most college students do not carry cash. Finally, we attended the Career Fair where we handed out flyers that offered students an additional, more casual networking opportunity. The flyers that we handed out can be seen below.
