Students and industry mingle at Tastes of Toronto event

By Rick Hutson

The CIM Toronto Branch held its 4th annual Tastes of Toronto networking event this past October at the National Club in downtown Toronto. More than 80 students had the opportunity to meet with more than 110 industry executives during an evening of rich conversation shared over drinks and gourmet appetizers. CIM president Chris Twigge-Molecey attended the event and spoke to the group on the Institute’s future direction and priorities.

Earlier in the day, the Management and Economics Society of CIM held a Career Options seminar at the Scotia Plaza featuring industry speakers discussing topics pertinent to the students’ future careers in mining. The seminar was followed by the ever-popular “Rick and Larry Show,” where speakers Rick Hutson and Larry Smith provided relevant information on networking, resumé writing, creating effective business cards and other useful career-building tips and hints. The students then headed over to the National Club to put the invaluable advice into action.

The CIM Toronto Branch would like thank the industry sponsors who made this event possible. Because of their generous support, students were able to enjoy this unique event free of charge. The branch looks forward to its next student–industry luncheon mixer to be held on February 24, 2011.
