Black Tech Professionals on the West Coast to Meet For an Evening of Networking on Feb 18th

— Symantec and HBCUConnect.com to host VIP networking event for African American Professionals in the IT and technology industry in the Bay Area —

African American professional networking event

One of last year’s VIP networking events hosted by HBCU Connect

Mountain View, CA — HBCUConnect.com, in partnership with Symantec’s Black Employee Resource Group, is hosting a networking event for HBCU Alumni and other African American professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. The event will give them the opportunity to meet with representatives from Symantec to learn more about career opportunities, network with their peers, as well as open up one on one discussions that could lead to future employment.

HBCUConnect.com, a professional social media platform for students and alumni of Historically Black College and Universities (HBCUs), has facilitated similar events in the past on the east coast where African American professionals enjoyed networking and took advantage of career opportunities that resulted in many hires at some of the best companies in the country.

This particular event, however, is especially for HBCU Alumni as well as African American professionals specifically living or working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Symantec is excited about the opportunity to host the event and network with talent in the area, introducing them to the amazing staff at Symantec and also some of the cool things about working there.

This is an excellent opportunity for African Americans living or working on the West Coast to make new connections, expand their network, and explore new career opportunities.
