Where Are They Now?' Networking Event provides new connections and opportunities for RMIT students and alumni.

Early evening rain did not dampen the spirits of close to 300 people who attended the Where Are They Now? Networking Event. RMIT University Vietnam alumni, students and staff, together with industry representatives, converged at Hard Rock Café on Monday April 25 for one the most anticipated events of this semester, organised by Professional Communication students undertaking COMM2386 Interdisciplinary Communication Project (ICP).

Amid the venue's 'rock 'n' roll' atmosphere, visitors enjoyed establishing professional connections throughout the night. The cosy venue was just right for students to have a chat with alumni and stakeholders from industry. Business cards were exchanged, with exciting internship and work opportunities offered to some of our students.

These outcomes signal success for the Where Are They Now? Campaign, connecting past and present RMIT University Vietnam students by sharing alumni's success stories and inspiring current students to begin writing their own success stories. Monday night's event was the culmination of the efforts from RMIT Vietnam alumni, staff members, volunteers, generous sponsors and especially the ICP students, who must be applauded for their hard work at the helm of a wonderful campaign.

The event ended in a high note with musical performances from Mai Khoi and Saint O Band, who were energised by enthusiastic and 'crazy fans' from RMIT.

Finally, a huge thanks to all at RMIT Vietnam who have helped make the event and the campaign so successful.
