Wired Philly at Franklin Institute


Our first career event of the semester – Wired Philly! Connect and get wired with leading STEM employers from across the region at our free career event (plus get some free dinner, too!).

Meet companies currently hiring for internships and entry level roles in science, technology, app development, coding, and much more! This will be a casual network-building reception (with free food!) that focuses on genuine relationships – come learn more about all the opportunities available to you in Philadelphia STEM, make some new contacts and meet recruiters.

Stick around to explore the Franklin Institute’s Vikings exhibit – an extra ticket (discounted to $10!) is required for the exhibit, you may pay at the door, but the networking reception is entirely free!

Philadelphia’s tech and science industries are booming, and they’re all looking for talent that looks just like you.

Engage Philly

Doors open 5:30PM, Round table discussion 6-6:50PM, Q&A 6:50-7PM, networking 7-8PM

We know that solving problems doesn’t happen in a bubble, and Philadelphia is the original city of collaborators! In that spirit, we are bringing together people from all different sectors for a civic hack-a-thon to “solve” a problem in real time that we face in Philadelphia. Afterwards, there will be a networking reception where you can make connections, become a social impact star, and help build a more inclusive Philadelphia.

Create Philly

Doors open 5PM, panel discussion 5:30-6:30PM, and networking 6:30-7:30PM

Philadelphia’s creative industry is booming, students can figure out how to become a part of it at this night programmed specifically for students seeking jobs in creative industries. After a panel discussion led by creatives from Publicis Health, Ikea, and more, students can stay for a networking reception.

Spark Philly

Doors open 5PM, discussions 5:30-6:30PM, and networking 6:30-7:30PM

SPARK Philly was built on the premise that great networking is built from genuine connections and relationships, and these relationships are what should ultimately drive the career search. Professionals and student mentors from the Philadelphia area will facilitate small group discussions by drawing upon their experiences, as they pass along hard earned advice to students. The event will conclude with a networking session where students can connect with employers and other college students.
