Are you a soon-to-be graduate who’s just a little bit freaked out by this whole business of getting a career going? Networking doesn’t have to be a weird chore.

The Hip Haus hosts networking events for young professionals across the GTA; it doesn’t matter if you are a business owner, have a job, are looking for a job, recently graduated university/college, still in university/college, looking for others to launch a new idea or just want to meet other professionals. Expect to meet a diverse range of industry folk, from entrepreneurs and artists to lawyers, doctors and bankers.

Bring a stack of business cards, hang out, have a beer, and bring an open mind to meet new people and make some connections that can benefit you in the long term. Their next event is tomorrow (Wednesday June 15) at Maison Mercer (15 Mercer St.) from 5-8:30 p.m. Entry is always free. Work!
