Hokies helping Hokies
RVA Hokies, Networking, Job Search, Ut Prosim


HhH is a NETWORKING GROUP that meets the third Wednesday of every month from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM

Please check the Events Calendar for details about and the location of each month's meeting -- it can vary!  Who doesn't love a ROAD TRIP now and again?

Unless noted otherwise on the events calendar, we gather at the Virginia Tech Richmond Center, 2810 N. Parham Rd, Suite 300, Henrico VA 23294.  From the elevator, the Premiere Room is down the corridor, to the right, on the right, just past the restrooms.    

So what is Hokies helping Hokies?  HhH is a business and personal networking group. All are welcome, Hokie credentials are not required, but we all cheerfully subscribe to the Hokie motto, Ut Prosim, That I May Serve.  Givers really do Gain.  As the attendance grows, the networking and connection opportunities grow.

Are you a job seeker? Welcome.  A student seeking an internship for the next break from school? Come visit.  Want more customers for your business? Promote away.  Need suppliers, vendors? Just ask.  Is there a service/product provider you wish to recommend? Great! Is your business hiring? Front row seating for you!  Maybe you are just new to the area -- this is a GREAT place to start connecting in RVA! 

We start at 7:30 am, with the WORK (and the fun) of networking taking place informally as we mill around, meet and greet each other, and discover opportunities until being seated around 8:00.

The sit down agenda will usually have an educational component - a networking how-to tip or two, for example. It will always have attendee introduction time - come prepared to tell us what you have or want, and succinctly. You will have 30-60 seconds to state your case depending on the number of attendees. Finally, and oh, so importantly, we take time for attendees to respond to the requests that were made during the round of quick introductions - again, when presenting, be succinct, but also be specific and crystal clear with your requests in order to get the best help possible. We want to know how we can help. Likewise, your job is to be alert for opportunities to help others.

Coffee and pastries are provided.  Registration is not required, but a quick click from the events calendar to our meetup page will help ensure there's plenty coffee to fuel the event.  In addition to your business cards or handouts, bring a friend, colleague, prospective customer, a neighbor whose business is hiring, a service provider worthy of your recommendation, well, you get the picture.

And about that possible Road Trip?  HhH is always open to consider a host venue.  In return for providing a suitable venue, ample agenda time will be given to promote the business or cause of the host.
