John Hancock

The Lead Dog program provides you with the chance to stay connected to Northeastern through educational and social events designed for alumni in your workplace. The program allows you to meet fellow alumni and students on co-op working in your organization, and occasionally mingle with members of other Lead Dog organizations. It also represents a great way to reconnect with your alma mater as you increase your networking connections and boost the recognition of your company throughout the Northeastern community.  

Northeastern's momentum is at an all-time high; with a number of alumni and co-op students at John Hancock, there is not a better time to become a part of the Lead Dog program at your organization.  Make your mark today by helping to plan or simply attend events at John Hancock and on the Northeastern campus.

Stay tuned for your Lead Dog representatives, and a special guest, to make an appearance in the Seaport in June 2014!

Go Huskies!

Adam's knowledge of the topic was met with eagerness from the audience by way of many insightful questions.
